We are incredibly proud to share our 2023 Economic Impact Report with you. Since opening in 2016, we've remained dedicated to fostering a thriving ecosystem for the entrepreneurs, remote workers, and startups that are fueling economic growth in Tulsa.

Our efforts are working, as 36°N members have generated an extraordinary $1.13 BILLION in direct economic impact on the Tulsa region over the last 5 years!

The impact of 36°N extends far beyond this milestone. It's about the individuals and businesses we’ve empowered to pursue their dreams and make a difference in our community.

It's about the connections, ideas, and collaborations that come from our programs, resources, and partnerships.

And it’s about the 445 businesses we supported in 2023 that created over 3,000 jobs in our region.

These achievements underscore the vital role that 36°N plays in economic development and job creation in Tulsa, and they would not be possible without you - our partners and supporters. Your commitment to 36°N, your belief in our mission, and your dedication to entrepreneurs, remote workers, and startups in Tulsa have been instrumental in our achievements.
