The program is presented by promotional partners i2E Inc., REI and Tulsa Metro Chamber and run by Nola Miyasaki, director of the Riata Center for Entrepreneurship in the Spears School, of Business at OSU, and Michael Morris, the N. Malone Mitchell Chair in Entrepreneurship and founder of the Entrepreneurship Department at OSU.
The two ran a similar program at Syracuse University for six years.
