How We Started
Since founding in 2005, TYPros aimed to provide Tulsa’s young entrepreneurs with the support of a resource-rich, low-cost incubator program. Hoping to attract and retain innovative young talent, The Forge was created to provide a springboard for their ideas. In 2009, after hundreds of man hours, the first generation of the Forge was open for business.
The Forge Today
After spending nearly two years in temporary locations, The Forge finally found it’s home at Third & Cheyenne. Since launching, the program has graduated numerous tenants and is consistently occupied at capacity. The economic impact of the program has surpassed expectations and is now considered the community’s entrepreneurial hub.
Into The Future
Small businesses are the lifeblood of our local economy, making up 80 percent of all businesses in Tulsa county, providing a gauge our city’s vitality. Tulsa’s entrepreneurial community is not only growing but, thriving. As the demand for support programs increases, The Forge will continue to grow, expand and meet the need of Tulsa’s growing creative class.
