“My time in the residence has been absolutely amazing! I was fortunate enough to receive this opportunity after being back in Tulsa for only a month. The community and resources that Build in Tulsa has provided have pushed me beyond what I ever imagined for my first few months back home. The staff is full of knowledge and they do everything in their power to connect you with mentors and like minded individuals that are outside of Build in Tulsa. Everyone in this environment truly wants to see you be successful and to see the other residents working just as hard to grow and learn is so motivating.”
“I consider my time in residence to be "God-sent." Before coming to 36N Basecamp II, I used to work from home. Having small children along with personal family/life demands, I found it difficult often to work without distractions or hindrances. On the contrary, now being in an atmosphere with like-minded people (my fellow BIT EIRs and other entrepreneurs), I find that issue has waned. I feel motivated and inspired to come into 36N to work on my business. I feel that I learn something new and forge new connections and relationships everyday! I look forward to what the rest of the Build In Tulsa Accelerator has to offer as I continue my business coaching with Desiree and scale my company with the knowledge and skills I'm learning as an Entrepreneur in Residence.”
“Participating in Build In Tulsa's Female Founder's Pitch Competition was an incredible experience! It was my first time officially pitching. Through the support that Build in Tulsa's team (Desiree and Ashli) provided through the pitch clinic and practicing with other founders, I was able to clarify my messaging and also formalize many aspects of my business that only existed in my head. By pitching in the competition I was able to share Your HR Strategist with the Tulsa entrepreneurial community and increase my network. The ongoing coaching and resources that Build in Tulsa has provided has undoubtedly helped accelerate the growth of my business and my comfort level in pitching my services to prospective clients, partners and funders.”
