36 Degrees North Secures Relief Funds
Tulsa-based 36 Degrees North (36°N) is receiving $1.25 million in COVID-19 Relief funding from the City of Tulsa to transform the vacant fifth floor of City Hall into a state-certified business incubator. The incubator will strengthen Tulsa’s economy as it recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic by growing new businesses that diversify the economic portfolio and create a more resilient community. 36 Degrees North is Tulsa’s basecamp for entrepreneurs, innovators and startups, providing the high-quality workspace, helpful resources and diverse community needed to build growing companies and drive economic impact in Tulsa.
The funds secured from the COVID-19 Relief funding will go directly towards outfitting a new high-growth, state-certified incubation facility. 36°N currently has two locations in the Tulsa Arts District that facilitate its 700-plus members in a combined 20,000 square feet of space. The third location in City Hall will be designated exclusively for high-growth, tech-enabled companies enrolled in their incubation program.
