What does your organization do? The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for Oklahomans through entrepreneurialism, education and community enrichment. To fulfill this mission, the Foundation acts as a grantmaker, innovator and convener. Fostering a healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem is the key to economic development in our community. We fund initiatives that promote entrepreneurial thinking and spur economic development in Tulsa.
Why did you decide to partner with 36°N? After writing the first State of Entrepreneurship report, we determined there were so many great resources that existed for entrepreneurs in Tulsa, but no where for everyone to convene. We were so excited to partner with other organizations in Tulsa to create a basecamp for entrepreneurs to connect with these resources, mentors and each other to build a more vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem.
