FortySix Venture Capital (46VC), a venture capital management firm with offices in Bentonville, AR and Tulsa, OK, announced the launch of Dickson & Main Fund I.

Managed by a team of experienced investors at 46VC, the fund will target early-stage tech founders with a strategic connection to the University of Arkansas and wider Arkansas entrepreneurial ecosystem. Dickson & Main will back founders affiliated with the university and entrepreneurial ecosystem with funding and help them harness the power of the university community.

Co-founded by Managing Partners Tracy Poole, Chuck Fuller, and Jim Barsness, 46VC is a venture capital fund manager that leverages large networks to invest in startups and technologies in the heartland region where it has an access to deal flow and domain expertise.

The Office of Entrepreneurship and Innovation (OEI) at the University of Arkansas (UofA) will serve as UofA’s liaison to Dickson & Main, playing a supportive role to build awareness of the importance of early-stage investment and to ensure that students have educational opportunities to participate in the due diligence process and other aspects of fund management through OEI’s Venture Intern Program.

The team of 46VC also includes Connor Sitton, Kate Lynn, and Garrett McCain.
