How is Tulsa different?
A city steeped in a rich history of legacies and legends, Tulsa has an experimental, pioneering spirit allowing it to endure failures as well as successes. Betting on an oil well that might run dry gave Tulsa a unique business character and an optimistic perspective. Tulsans celebrated oil booms and weathered busts as they planned how the city would attain greatness. Small businesses create two out of every three new jobs in the Tulsa metro area - more than 55,000 jobs with an estimated payroll of $1.4 billion. We are dedicated to supporting visionaries and entrepreneurs who are willing to take a chance in Tulsa. The City of Tulsa can assist small business owners and entrepreneurs in many ways.
Small Business Enterprise Program
The City of Tulsa has designed a new program for small businesses to interact with City employees and become contractors on various goods and services. Your company will be on a preferred list for consideration to do business with the City of Tulsa. Additional benefits include offerings in educational, partnering and networking opportunities to develop managerial and communications skills that may help build growth in your business.
In Tulsa, incentives aren’t just for businesses moving into the area, there are a number of programs for local companies expanding. We can assist you in identifying and determining eligibility for local incentives.
Infrastructure & Development Needs
Location can impact success in a variety of ways. Sometimes the perfect spot doesn't always contain the ideal infrastructure setup for your business' unique needs. Street access, power, water and other factors can be big determinants to your bottom line. Our Development Services Liaison can help find ways to maximize your enterprise’s benefit when moving or expanding.
Our website is a one-stop shop for information on everything from the permitting and planning processes to selling your goods or services to the City.
