StarSpace46: OKC's hub for innovation

Published: Tuesday, June 18, 2019 By: Marcus Elwell Source: VeloCity

StarSpace46 opened in the fall of 2016 and in a short time has quickly grown into Oklahoma City’s largest coworking space. However, simply calling StarSpace46 a coworking space sells the venture drastically short. StarSpace46 has become the central hub for the metro’s burgeoning tech and startup scene.

VeloCity recently sat down with Tommy Yi, president and cofounder of StarSpace46, to discuss the past, present and future of Oklahoma City’s tech scene.

VeloCity: How would you describe StarSpace46 to somebody who has no idea what you guys do?

Tommy Yi: First and foremost we are a coworking space, but then we are also a destination for entrepreneurs and small business owners who wanted to get plugged in into entrepreneurship. We host tech and entrepreneurial events, like 1 Million Cups. We also house a lot of small businesses ranging from a person who is just getting started part time all the way up to companies that have 10 employees and are hitting $2-3 million in revenue. We also have what we call corporate innovation deals, where we have companies like American Fidelity and Kimray house their innovation teams here.
