A new report from Tulsa’s 36 Degrees North said the companies they work with daily, have had a $238.7 million impact on the city's economy in the last three years. 36 Degrees North provides a quality workspace for small businesses and helps entrepreneurs grow.
“Just in 2019, we served over 285 membered companies, and those companies employed over one thousand individuals,” said 36 Degrees North CEO Devon Laney.
Laney said the economic impact on Tulsa continues to grow as new companies move to Tulsa. Companies like Respond Flow that just moved from Oklahoma City. “We couldn’t think of a better place to grow. With us being here we get access to such top tier talent there really is no place better that we could think to establish a headquarters and start to expand," said Peter Daggett with Respond Flow.
Other businesses like FC Tulsa said they were able to open their own office space, after the help they received from 36 Degrees North. “We don’t have to worry about the IT infrastructure, the connectivity to the printers, we can just really focus on running our business while they take care of the behind the scenes so we can continue to grow and evolve," said FC Tulsa President James Cannon.
“When they raise capital, when they employ people, when they create jobs, when they grow in scale those dollars stay in our community," said Laney.
