We’ve seen a bunch of new startup markets over the last year, and Oklahoma City is dying to get a piece of the action. In an effort to bolster the strength of the entrepreneurship community in Oklahoma, The LaunchOklahoma Accelerator and The 404 coworking space made a joint announcement recently.
Per their agreement, LaunchOklahoma’s 2014, 12-week accelerator program will now occupy the Back Room of The 404 office space in downtown OKC.
“This partnership is the culmination of ongoing discussions between the two organizations about how to best serve the ‘best-of-the-best’ startups that are admitted to the venture accelerator while also providing benefits to the larger community,” explains Kraettli Epperson, executive director of LaunchOklahoma.
The accelerator will be able to easily host and coordinate events in The 404 before and during the program while also providing members of The 404 access to their social networking events and a limited amount of mentor-led seminars and workshops. And all the startups participating get private access to The 404’s amenities for the duration of the program.
“LaunchOklahoma does a great deal for the Oklahoma startup community and we think the energy of their startup accelerator will be a great benefit to The 404 and the technical community that we’ve built here,” says John Kerber, manager of The 404.
