Jennifer McGrail
Executive Director and OVF Chairwoman, 2022-2023
Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology

Welcome back OVF Partners and Members!

I think it is fair to say that both the weather and the possibilities in innovation and entrepreneurship within Oklahoma where both HOT over the summer. From the awarding of the contract to create the Henrietta B. Foster Center for Northeast Small Business and Entrepreneurship, to the signing of the MOU positioning the Oklahoma – Arkansas region as a national hub for advanced mobility, to Cortado Ventures starting the second close for their Fund II, plus many, many more announcements, this summer was packed full of exciting things for Oklahoma.

While OVF might have been on a slight break, your OVF Board of Directors were at work planning on how to provide our members with more value through great speakers and learning at the monthly Power Lunches, meaningful networking at OVF After-Hours, and looking at how to celebrate our amazing entrepreneurs at the Annual Awards Ceremony. A sneak peek at what you can look forward to this year is a great session on how to move organizations forward through technical innovation, a look at the legislative side of entrepreneurship, a success story of acquisition, and so much more! As always, you will get to hear great founder pitches from across the state.     

We hope you will join us for our September 14, OVF Power Lunch as we hear from Flogistics and Bluejay Partners. We encourage you to invite a guest to the OVF Power Lunch. Your continued involvement in OVF along with helping invite others helps us continue to be the preeminent organization that fosters innovation and economic growth in Oklahoma. We are looking forward to a year that showcases the possibilities and opportunities right here in Oklahoma!

See you on September 14th!

Kindest Regards,

Jennifer McGrail
OVF Chair, 2022-2023
