2011 Impact Report
OCIB's economic impact has surpassed $1.5 billion.
The overriding mission of the Board is to mobilize equity and near-equity capital for investment to create jobs and diversify and stabilize the economy of the State of Oklahoma.
More specifically, the Board looks to support the growth of a broadly diversified financial industry capable of providing the necessary risk capital to Oklahoma entrepreneurial companies, ranging from early stage startups to later stage expansions.
By supporting investment in a number of venture capital funds, each with its own team of investment professionals, the Board is able to bring to Oklahoma a broad range of professional talent and capital to serve the diverse opportunities within the state. Likewise, by making a credit insurance type tool available to dozens of banks, the Board engages a large number of individual bankers in creating solutions for small business borrowers.
