Meacham: Oklahoma has long exhibited the DNA of entrepreneurshipPublished: Thursday, July 1, 2021 By: Scott Meacham Source: NewsOK
Of the nearly 3 billion base pairs in the human genome, about 99% are the same in every human being — however, it is the sequence of these DNA pairs that makes each of us who we are genetically.
It’s like that with entrepreneurial DNA — every state has it.
Our country was built by entrepreneurs. It’s just that from state to state, our DNA is “sequenced” differently.
In Oklahoma, our entrepreneurial DNA isn’t channeled from one dominant industry — or from a particular type of entrepreneur. Our state heroes of innovation have impacted industries across the board — from human flight to rock and roll. From changing the way that people drive to changing the way the way people exercise. From making it easier to shop to making it easier to park. From digging ditches to accessing the Internet.
