Entrepreneur competition benefits students, OklahomaPublished: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 By: Scott Meacham Source: NewsOK
This is the competition’s 15th year. Hundreds of Oklahomans are involved. A dedicated cadre of business leaders, investors, public sector officials, as well as entrepreneurs from Oklahoma’s innovation economy, come together to create this amazing competition and attend the awards dinner.
Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell was present to address the young entrepreneurs, stating his door is always open for Oklahoma’s entrepreneurs.
“I am passionate about creating an environment in Oklahoma that allows our entrepreneurs to launch and grow a business here,” he said. “I don’t want to see talented Oklahomans have to go to Denver or Dallas or Houston to find a support system that allows their business to get off the ground.
"The Love’s Entrepreneur’s Cup has been a phenomenal tool to engage our emerging generation and encourage their entrepreneurship. We want that emerging generation starting their businesses here and keeping them here.”
