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.
