A message from our partners at the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber:
It’s time again to conduct the Oklahoma City Metro Startup Census! We had a fantastic response last year – 130 companies participated in the census, which provided for meaningful insights and established a baseline for the census to build on in the years to come.
In recent years, there has been a surge in resources for entrepreneurs, investment activity, and optimism around launching a business in our city that has led to the creation of new, scalable businesses.
As ecosystem builders around the city seek to serve entrepreneurs in an equitable way, and see the launch of a diverse array of businesses, we hope this annual census will serve as a resource year after year in understanding our strengths and our gaps as an entrepreneurial community. For the 2020 census, we partnered with the Ronnie K. Irani Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth at OU (I-CCEW) to develop an insights document to summarize the themes from the census and make a few recommendations about how the community can address gaps.
Please forward/distribute this survey to every startup (any stage – pre-revenue or post-revenue) or growing small business that you know in the Oklahoma City region and encourage their follow-through.
The survey will be active until February 12th, which should give plenty of time to send to all your portfolio companies, clients, and friends.
