A Growing Economy

"Oklahoma City is on the move. With the renovation of downtown and the development of the OK9 technology corridor, it is a great time to invest in Oklahoma."
-John Snow, Former Dean of the College of Atmospheric & Geographic Sciences

City Advantages Nearby

"Norman is a small town next to a big city. You get the small-town feel with all the advantages of the big city’s recreational opportunities nearby."
-Bruce Pearson, VP Pharmaceutical Manufacturing for Yamanouchi Pharma Technologies Inc. 

Easy Commute

"If you go up to Silicon Valley, people will spend two hours a day commuting to and from work. Here in Oklahoma, a one-hour commute is considered a long commute. The accessibility of major highways and the infrastructure of the area allows for a better quality of life than along other technology corridors."
-G. Carl Gibson, CFO of Ekips


"One of the main advantages of living in Norman is the opportunity for continued education. Our previous HR manager was able to complete her law degree with night school and special programs at OU while she worked for us."
-Sreenivasan Rajappa, President of Xyant Technology
