Tulsa Global Entrepreneurship Week is Tulsa’s biggest entrepreneurial event of the year! It’s a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups, bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. Tulsa GEW is also an opportunity to get your business on track, connect with other business owners and learn more about the city's abundant entrepreneurial resources.

NEW FOR TULSA GEW 2018: PICK YOUR TRACK

This year, Tulsa GEW has a new format! A team of local entrepreneurs and community leaders created targeted, daily tracks to serve entrepreneurs in different stages of business growth. Our hope is that these niche focus days- filled with actionable workshops and high-quality networking activities- will give business owners more relevant, tangible takeaways and ultimately lead to accelerated growth.

Tickets are $25 per day and include admission to all workshops on your selected day of the week, lunch on your selected day of the week, admission to GEW 2018 evening events (including The Future of Entrepreneurship with Robert Smith, Tulsa Startup Series Demo Day and the GEW Celebration Party), and admission to Wednesday’s B2B Networking event.
