Oklahoma entity receives $1 million grant
OKLAHOMA CITY — The city of Oklahoma City and four other groups will collectively match a $1 million Economic Development Administration Grant that has been awarded to a private, not-for-profit entity.
Greater Oklahoma City Chamber president Roy Williams said Thursday that the grant given to i2E will allow Oklahoma and Oklahoma City to better serve start-up and growth-stage companies.
The grant will fund the Oklahoma Technology Business Launch Program, which i2E will locate at the Presbyterian Health Foundation Research Park in Oklahoma City. The program will focus on identifying early stage, advanced technology companies that fit specific criteria for launch and growth stage assistance.
The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber, the Oklahoma Business Roundtable and the Presbyterian Health Foundation are helping match the grant.
