Oklahoma is fine place to launch tech startup, entrepreneur saysPublished: Tuesday, October 31, 2017 By: Scott Meacham Source: NewsOK
It's always exciting to be engaged at the core of Oklahoma's entrepreneurial community. One of the highlights is hosting the annual Entrepreneurial Summit.
This is the fifth year since i2E inaugurated this event, and it just keeps getting better. The agenda is never blue-sky or self-serving. Our focus is always to feature panelists and speakers with real experience in starting and funding companies — people who have won and lost in the trenches.
This year the agenda featured a cadre of Oklahomans. We had a fantastic “how to” panel discussion with Oklahoma entrepreneurs on creating the right mix of talent at each stage of a venture. Then our own Oklahoma-grown Prerna Gupta, took the podium as our keynote speaker.
Gupta is a serial entrepreneur who has been founding consumer entertainment startups for over a decade. Her most recent venture, Hooked, is an iPhone application that is targeted to teenagers and millennials and reading through engaging story telling via a text message format.
