From Legacy to Leading Edge: Tech in the Heartland

Mar 11, 2023

10:00am – 11:00am CT

There is a $68 million opportunity for legacy industries to embrace innovation and invest in new startups; a thesis Tulsa has taken to heart. From EIC Rose Rock, a three-pronged energy tech initiative, to a $38.2 million EDA invested in Tulsa’s Advanced Mobility sector, to Canopy Health Tech, an incubator to take medical research to market faster, Tulsa’s tech and innovation space is ripe for investment.
Hear from four leaders contributing to the cross-functional investment thesis in Tulsa and focusing on the city’s right-to-win areas that will set it up as the next Tech Hub in the Heartland. From building a robust startup ecosystem to working with education institutions to make research market-ready, these speakers are at the bleeding edge of the Tulsa Tech Hub.
