What we do.
Business Attraction, Creation and Retention
We recruit new businesses to the state by promoting the great assets we have for businesses to succeed. We work to foster an entrepreneurial culture and infrastructure in Oklahoma to encourage the start-up of new businesses and partner with communities to ensure existing businesses grow and prosper.
We partner with city and county elected officials and community leaders to help raise incomes, improve the quality of life for local residents, and help local businesses to thrive. Through federal funding, we oversee vital infrastructure and human services investments that help position communities as favorable for business attraction.
