October 28, 2015 - TULSA – Oklahoma entrepreneurs have outperformed global
results, according to the Entrepreneurs’ Organization’s Global Entrepreneur
Indicator survey released Wednesday.
The Global Entrepreneurs Indicator examines the economic
market and business performance for entrepreneurs.
The survey shows more Oklahoma entrepreneurial businesses
have increased net profits and access to capital than the global average.
Findings show that 68.2 percent of Oklahoma firms have
increased net profits, compared with the global average of 61.5 percent. The
survey also found that 36.4 percent of Oklahoma respondents indicated increased
access to capital, slightly outpacing the global results of 35.6 percent. EO
Oklahoma members are confident of continued positive results, said EO Oklahoma
President Matthew Bristow. “While Oklahoma may be known for its leading role in
the energy business, we also have a vibrant community of successful entrepreneurs
with businesses ranging from wireless communications and media to information
technology services and software,” Bristow said.
