Executive Director
Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science & Technology

As we get ready to pop open the champagne and belt out the lyrics to Ault Lang Syne, I’m sure I am not the only one thinking of what my New Year’s resolution for 2023 will be. For this year, I’ve decided to make the phrase “seize the opportunity” my resolution.

I know this is incredibly fitting for many of us with the Oklahoma Venture Forum. For our founders, they are working to seize every opportunity and even working to create and find opportunity where none might exist. For our resource providers, you all are the ones working tirelessly to help create opportunities and connect others to them. To our funders, you all are not only working day-in and day-out to identify new opportunities, but you work to provide critical capital so that others can seize their opportunities.

I would like to invite you all to join me in seizing the opportunities in 2023. You can start your year off right by seizing the opportunity and joining us for the January OVF Power Lunch. During our event, we will hear from Anita Ly, Managing Director of the OKC Gener8tor Accelerator program. Anita will share more on what founders they are looking for and what plans Gener8tor has for OKC. We will also have the chance to hear pitches from Zara Ahmen with Bison Underground and Ryan Skeffington with Cheers!.

We look forward to seeing you in January and hope that you will take the chance and seize the opportunity to show up and support OVF all year long!

Kindest Regards,
Jennifer McGrail
