Partnership leads to national award

SourceLink Tulsa, powered by the Tulsa Metro Chamber, was recently awarded the Partnership Award at the U.S. SourceLink National Conference sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

The award recognized the partnership between Dr. Margaret A. White, professor of management at OSU-Tulsa, and Chamber staff members Kinnee Tilly, vice president of business retention, expansion and small business, and Warren Unsicker, former small business programs manager. Together, the team explored opportunities for using SourceLink data to better understand services needed by entrepreneurs and how to attract new businesses to the Tulsa region.

USSourceLink is an integrated economic development system that connects aspiring, emerging and established small business owners to a wide network of business-building resource organizations. Dr. White played an integral role in launching SourceLink Tulsa.
