Progress OKC was created to support and revitalize Oklahoma City communities that have experienced significant disinvestment. Their mission is to strengthen and preserve the social and economic fabric in Oklahoma City’s underserved communities by engaging in programs and partnerships focused on housing stability, economic mobility, quality of place, and education. For Minority Enterprise Development Week, Progress OKC hosts a week of events that are targeted to BIPOC entrepreneurs, founders, and business owners. These events highlight minority-owned businesses in the OKC metro area across industries and cultures; celebrate the achievements and contributions of minority-owned businesses and entrepreneurs; and strengthen the minority business enterprise ecosystem through best practice education, consumer relations, technological innovation, and capital investment.
