Increasing access to venture capital for Arkansas businesses
The Arkansas Institutional Fund (AIF) works to build the state economy by increasing access to venture capital for innovative Arkansas businesses.
Established in 2005, the AIF program is expected to result in over $420 million of equity, near equity, and debt capital for Arkansas businesses through its first and second rounds of investment.
AIF is managed by Cimarron Capital Partners, LLC.
“AIF is expected to yield significant economic benefits to our state over time by fostering the growth of a robust risk capital industry serving Arkansas entrepreneurs.”
