From the creation of Tulsa’s first business plan competition to building Tulsa’s first basecamp for entrepreneurship and Tulsa’s first kitchen incubator, our direct involvement in supporting local businesses spans decades. The path and the speed at which Tulsa moves in this realm varies, but one thing remains consistent. Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation works to break down barriers that prevent entrepreneurs from succeeding, and when push comes to shove, we’ve

gone so far as to create our own programs to fill the gaps. That’s how much we believe these business owners have the power to impact the future of Tulsa.

LTFF Founding Partner: 36°North

As Cultivate 918 began to take shape, the need for a physical hub for entrepreneurship quickly emerged. CEO Elizabeth Frame Ellison dreamt of a one-stop-shop where entrepreneurs of all industries could access community resources, startup programs, mentors and knowledge to position their businesses for success. She forged a partnership with George Kaiser Family Foundation, and together they rallied community partners to form 36°North. Today, this coworking space houses more than 80 diverse and growing companies.
