fostering growth for new and existing small business ventures since 1987
The Venture of the Year Award and Most Promising New Business Award are two of the most prestigious recognition a company can receive because they represent the triumph of the entrepreneurial dream and spirit.
We foster new and existing business ventures in Oklahoma through monthly Power Lunches, OVF After Hours and annual recognition awards. Our diverse membership includes investors, entrepreneurs and service providers from across Oklahoma representing the wide array of business interests in our state. OVF programs create awareness of business opportunities and trends and offer purposeful networking for leaders of commerce.
The Oklahoma Venture Forum has annual awards events that were developed to recognize the achievements of successful Oklahoma companies. These awards encourage and identify the importance of entrepreneurship in our state. Each of the recipients is an outstanding Oklahoma success story with a bright future.
Oklahoma Venture Forum is the oldest organization of its kind. The organization was founded in 1987 and will continue to be the champion for small businesses ventures and economic development by connecting and recognizing venture talents in Oklahoma for many years to come.
