Build in Tulsa Background:
The mission of Build in Tulsa is to close the racial wealth gap in America by catalyzing multi-generational Black wealth through tech and entrepreneurship. Build in Tulsa is dedicated to providing Black entrepreneurs with the human, social, and financial capital needed for success in commercializing new products and services into the marketplace. Central to our work is our network of accelerators including ACT Tulsa, Lightship and Techstars, designed to meet underrepresented Black and Brown entrepreneurs wherever they are in their journey. Build in Tulsa helps entrepreneurs build skills, build networks, and build capital to take their businesses to the next level. Build in Tulsa is providing a suite of services including training and workshops to get founders accelerator-ready, mentoring and networking events to introduce entrepreneurs to each other as well as strategic partners, and connecting entrepreneurs to potential sources of capital. Build in Tulsa is also addressing some of the barriers that many Black entrepreneurs face by providing free coworking space, cost of living assistance, funding for technology and other microgrants.
