Oklahoma City among top 5 cities with youngest entrepreneurs

By Chamber Staff / Inside OKC / September 13, 2018

You’re never too young to set out on your quest for entrepreneurial glory—especially if you live in one of these cities! Lending Tree recently set out to find the cities with the youngest entrepreneurs: Cities with fewer obstacles to keep you from your dreams of success, mostly cities with more manageable costs and plenty of networking opportunities. Cities like Oklahoma City, which is especially loaded with benefits for millennials like being among the top cities where millennials are most likely to make more money, being one of the best cities for millennial homeownership, and being one of the overall best metros for millennials.

“Oklahoma is the last city that can boast an average founder age under 38 years old, and it’s also the city among the top 10 with the largest share of millennial founders, at 43.7%.

These young entrepreneurs can thank the solid network of support found in Oklahoma City and throughout the state, too — for instance, a business incentive act offers a tax break to Oklahoma businesses participating in certified business incubators.

Lastly, a low cost of living will help ensure founders can put their capital toward starting and growing their Oklahoma City startups — and not just keeping the lights on.”
