About Build in Tulsa

The mission of Build in Tulsa is to close the racial wealth gap in America by catalyzing the creation of multi-generational Black wealth through tech and entrepreneurship. Rooted in the legacy of Black Wall Street, Build in Tulsa is committed to providing opportunity for minority entrepreneurs who have historically been denied resources and funding. Build in Tulsa is partnering with several accelerators including ACT Tulsa, Lightship Foundation, and Techstars designed to meet underrepresented Black and Brown entrepreneurs wherever they are in their business development journey. Build in Tulsa provides a suite of services including training and workshops to get founders accelerator-ready, mentoring and networking events to introduce entrepreneurs to each other as well as strategic partners, and connecting entrepreneurs to potential sources of capital. Build in Tulsa is also addressing some of the barriers that many Black entrepreneurs face by providing free coworking space, cost of living assistance, funding for technology and other microgrants.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Adam in his role as Managing Director of the Techstars Equitech accelerator. Adam brings a deep knowledge of startups and investing and a passion for our mission. He has a builders-first mentality and we clicked immediately,”
