The Kaiser Foundation begins recruiting entrepreneurs

TULSA, Oklahoma —With this summer’s announcement of Amazon’s new distribution center to be built in Tulsa and the long anticipated opening of the Gathering place, the rebranding of the state’s second largest town is fully underway.

The Kaiser Foundation’s new program, Tulsa Remote, was recently launched in an effort to attract young entrepreneurs to the city to go along with the city’s expected economic boon.

The new program will give $10,000 to selected applicants provided they meet the following requirements:

– Must be able to move to Tulsa within six months.

– Must have full time remote employment, meaning you work from home or outside of a traditional office setting.

– Must be eligible to work in the United States.

– Must be at least 18 years old.

Awardees will receive a portion of the $10,000 upfront to help offset moving costs, a portion will be dispersed as a monthly stipend with any remaining monies to be given out at the end of the first year.

Along with the financial incentive, Tulsa Remote participants will also have the option to live in a new fully furnished apartment located in the Tulsa Arts District at a discounted rate, with utilities included for the first three months.

Deskspace at 36 Degrees North, a Tulsa coworking/networking community in the downtown area, is also provided for participants.
