Join The "Gold Standard" of Entrepreneur Mentoring Programs!

The nonprofit Oklahoma Entrepreneur Mentoring Program (OKEMP) gives entrepreneurs from the State of Oklahoma the opportunity to work directly with seasoned, volunteer business executives in an unbiased, structured, long-term, and confidential team-mentoring approach at no cost.

If you are a passionate entrepreneur with an eagerness to learn and in search of advice to grow your business to the next level then we want you!


You have until Sunday, June 20th, 2021 11:59 PM (Central Time) to apply. All applications will be considered.

Virtual interviews will be scheduled with top candidates. Applicants who are chosen to participate will be announced and invited to present their business to community leaders and OKEMP mentors at an event July 27th (either in person or virtually as conditions permit).

OKEMP is a sister program to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Venture Mentoring Service (MIT VMS), considered by the prestigious Kauffman Foundation as the "Gold Standard" of entrepreneur mentoring programs. OKEMP was launched by Creative Oklahoma in 2019 and we are now ready to expand and take on a new cohort of entrepreneurs. We would love to include you!
