i2E focused on helping startup 'saplings' succeed long term
Oklahoma nonprofit corporation focuses on helping entrepreneurs become successful.
DID YOU KNOW?
Angel investments created 106,400 new jobs in the U.S.in the first half of 2012, with 3.9 jobs per angel investment.
We have a proven model that can dramatically increase an Oklahoma entrepreneur's chance to succeed. Even so, a significant percentage of startups are going to fail. That's the nature of innovation.
That means that while we are constantly working to improving our rate of success, Oklahoma also needs to focus economic resources toward increasing the number of startup saplings we plant.
