An Economy Built for Everyone

Whether it’s a new restaurant or an IT firm, there has never been a better time than now to start a business in Tulsa. Access to capital and mentorships in Tulsa continue to grow, and resources like the Tulsa Small Business Connection provide entrepreneurial education, management training, growth assistance and strategy.

Inc. Magazine ranked Tulsa 19th in rate of entrepreneurship, noting Tulsa’s nonprofit coworking space at 36 Degrees North and venture capital investment firm i2E. Tulsa also ranked in WalletHub’s Best Cities for Hispanic Small Businesses in 2019. PartnerTulsa is here to help new business owners facilitate their ventures – whether by increasing access to capital, providing connections to public contracting opportunities, or partnering to increase mentorship and support programs.
