Join us for Starters Bootcamp, a 7-week pre-accelerator facilitated by 36°N, in collaboration with Tulsa Technology Center and CO.STARTERS, where you'll learn the basics of turning an idea into a business in a cohort format with the support of mentors, advisors, and a business ecosystem to help you succeed long term.

Drawing from the experience of successful entrepreneurs and startup veterans from around the globe, Starters Bootcamp pre-accelerator walks innovators with ideas through lean, effective business modeling methods in a simple and intuitive way while connecting them to a supportive community of peers and mentors.
