Tulsa offers a wealth of opportunities with an exploding startup ecosystem, numerous cultural attractions, and a front row seat to the Arkansas River.

A History of Black Entrepreneurship

The original home of Black Wall Street has seen a coalition of leaders in government, business, philanthropy, and education come together to jump start its startup ecosystem. Though the history of Black entrepreneurship in Tulsa is one of triumph and tragedy, the city is embracing collaborative solutions to develop resources for Black founders and using unique programs to attract new diverse talent to the community.

For the better part of the 20th century, Tulsa was known as the “Oil Capital of the World,” but today its economy is fueled by telecommunications, aviation, technology, and finance. It rests on the Arkansas River in a region of Oklahoma known as Green Country and is considered the cultural epicenter of the Sooner State. Whether you plan on visiting the new Greenwood Rising history center, viewing large concentrations of art deco architecture, playing at the 100-acre riverfront park the Gathering Place, hearing high notes at an opera, or scarfing down limitless food options, this beautiful community has something to offer everyone.
