Access to capital for Oklahoma’s emerging, high growth entrepreneurs has taken a big leap forward with a joint initiative between i2E, Oklahoma Department of Commerce and the U.S. Treasury Department that created an investment fund totaling $13.2 million.
The result of this Oklahoma collaboration is an investment fund that offers equity and growth investment capital for state-based entrepreneurs, depending on the lifecycle stage of their business. This fund were appropriated through the Oklahoma Commerce Department by the U.S. Treasury Department and are managed by i2E.
This $13.2 million initiative is being launched under the name Accelerate Oklahoma!
Accelerate Oklahoma! targets Oklahoma management teams, “true rounds” of investment capital that provide enough capital for 24 months of runway. Accelerate Oklahoma will typically not consider bridge funding or investment when senior management is located outside of Oklahoma.
