The Oklahoma Private Enterprise Forum was organized in Tulsa to foster business development through private enterprise. Prior to merging with the Oklahoma Investment Forum, OPEF provided a forum for investors, entrepreneurs and others to exchange experiences and ideas through discussions and studies of corporate finance and investing, and development and growth of new and existing small businesses.
The annual Oklahoma Investment Forum was created to provide a format for matching business needs to investment capital and corporate finance. Selected high growth companies from the state made featured presentations to a national audience of private capitalists. Entrepreneurs obtained an estimated $150 million as a result of the Oklahoma Investment Forum.
