La Semana - - NOTICIAS -


“Tulsa is a gen­er­ous and wel­com­ing city, and through this ef­fort we hope to draw re­mote work­ers who can fur­ther com­ple­ment our tal­ented work­force,” said Ken Le­vit, ex- ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Ge­orge Kaiser Fam­ily Foun­da­tion. “Over the past ten years, the Foun­da­tion has worked with nu­mer­ous com­mu­nity part­ners to bring more than 1,000 young peo­ple to Tulsa. We could not be more proud of the con­tri­bu­tions of Teach For Amer­ica, City Year and the many artists of the Tulsa Artist Fel­low­ship who have joined the Tulsa com­mu­nity. We are look­ing for tal­ented and en­er­getic peo­ple who not only will con­sider re-lo­cat­ing per­ma­nently to Tulsa but es­pe­cially for peo­ple who want to make some­thing hap­pen here— to add to the dy­namism, ide­al­ism and get ‘er done spirit of Tulsa.”

Each $10,000 grant will be dis­trib­uted over the course of a year to el­i­gi­ble re­mote work­ers or en­trepreneurs liv­ing out­side of Tulsa County. Par­tic­i­pants will ini­tially be given $2,500 to be put to­wards re­lo­ca­tion ex­penses, a $500 per month stipend and $1,500 at the end of the 12-month pro­gram. The funds for this ef­fort are pro­vided ex­clu­sively by GKFF.

Tulsa Re­mote will pro­vide cowork­ing space for the year at 36 De­grees North, Tulsa’s base­camp for en­trepreneurs, and of­fer monthly meet-ups and work­shops in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Tulsa's Young Pro­fes­sion­als (TYPros), an or­ga­ni­za­tion that builds re­la­tion­ships with Tulsa’s com­mu­nity, busi­ness and govern­ment lead­ers.

Tulsa Re­mote pro­gram par­tic­i­pants will have ac­cess to a range of ben­e­fits that pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for sup­port and com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing dis­counted rent, reg­u­lar meetup events, com­mu­nity build­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, a year’s free co-work­ing space, and Skill­share work­shops from TYPros

"The Tulsa Re­mote par­tic­i­pants will be an in­cred­i­ble ad­di­tion to our vi­brant net­work of en­trepreneurs," said Mag­gie Hoey, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Tulsa’s Young Pro­fes­sion­als.

In an ef­fort to iden­tify and select suc­cess­ful can­di­dates for the pro­gram, Tulsa Re­mote has part­nered with Tulsa-based Ho­gan As­sess­ments, a global leader in per­son­al­ity as­sess­ment and lead­er­ship de­vel­op­ment.

The City of Tulsa and GKFF launched this pro­gram to ex­pose pro­fes­sion­als to Tulsa’s af­ford­abil­ity, its cen­tral lo­ca­tion be­tween the coasts, and the sup­port­ive pro­fes­sional com­mu­nity.

Tulsa is ranked as one of the most af­ford­able cities to live in, and also houses world-class mu­se­ums like the Philbrook and Gil­crease, a grow­ing food and drink scene, and a brand new $465M river­front park, The Gath­er­ing Place.

Ap­pli­ca­tions and more in­for­ma­tion on Tulsa Re­mote can be found at Tul­saRe­ To be el­i­gi­ble for this pro­gram, par­tic­i­pants must pro­vide proof of em­ploy­ment, be at least 18 years of age, work for a busi­ness that is based out­side of Tulsa County, and com­mit to mov­ing and liv­ing in Tulsa for at least one year.
