The Ada Jobs Foundation will increase the number of scalable technology startup companies local to Ada and rural Southern Oklahoma. The initiative will leverage opportunities to connect siloed technology communities, accelerate support, and increase access to early-stage capital for scalable tech startups in rural Oklahoma. The project will address these opportunities through the creation of a scalable technology startup ecosystem, a startup accelerator, investor outreach, and commercialization events. This project is based in the Chickasaw Nation's territory, and it will emphasize the inclusion of Chickasaw and other Native American startup founders. The Ada Jobs Foundation will lead this effort in partnership with the city of Ada, the Chickasaw Nation, East Central University, Pontotoc Technology Center, and Oklahoma Gas and Electric.
