  • POSSIBLE TECH PARK SPACE: Across from the Little Rock Convention Center.

The Little Rock Technology Park Authority board will go into executive session at its regular meeting tomorrow to consider applicants for the Tech Park director's job. The meeting is at 4 p.m. in the Pulaski County Regional Building at Markham and Broadway, across from City Hall.

There are eight candidates:  James Benham of Texas Candy Bouquet International CEO; Brent Birch  , director at FLEX360 Web Development of Little Rock;   Paulo de Miranda of Brazil;  Greg Hogue of TargetSmart Communications in Little Rock;  David Moody  of Innovis Labs, Little Rock;  Rudy_Ortiz_-_Resume.pdf , consultant with the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center at UALR;  Brian Rogers  of Arkansas State University's Small Business and Technology Development Center, and  Scott Shellabarger , vice president of IT at NovaSys Health.  

The Authority, which has been searching for accelerator/programming space for Little Rock's first Ark Challenge, is now considering the former On the Rocks bar space in the Block 2 lofts across from the Little Rock Convention Center. The authority has apparently rejected a space on the 100 block of Main Street next door to Orbea Bike headquarters. The new location is just under 8,000 square feet. Board member Jay Chesshir is handling negotiations; the lease is also on the agenda tomorrow.
