Annually, enrollment in CareerTech classes tops more than 455,000. Rural Oklahoma and CareerTech are a perfect partnership to help reverse the rural migration trend.
Rural, urban, minority or not, if entrepreneurs don’t know where to go for help — or worse, they live in a city that doesn’t have resources for entrepreneurs — then they will move. Period.
Over the past few decades we’ve lost far too many entrepreneurs to thriving tech hubs. Thankfully, that’s changing.
COVID-19 has fast-tracked a remote worker movement, and companies are turning their backs on anti-business states.
Oklahoma, therefore, is now on the rise, and with the help of incubators like 36 Degrees North, we can now deliver.
AOL’s billionaire co-founder Steve Case is convinced that the future of American startups lies outside of Silicon Valley, New York City and Boston, which currently receive 75% of all venture capital in the U.S.
Since 2014, Case has gone on a “Rise of the Rest” bus tour to encourage entrepreneurship across the country, for a total of 38 cities outside of the three main venture capital centers. He’s slated to visit Oklahoma once the pandemic is behind us.
This national movement, coupled with our state’s efforts to invest in our entrepreneurs, bodes well for Oklahoma’s future.
