According to the Kauffman Foundation's Indicators of Entrepreneurship 2019 Report, only 0.31% of the population started a new business in 2019. CIEDA realizes that entrepreneurs are self-motivated, creative, and have strong leadership skills making them unique and extremely focused in their quest to succeed.

Before starting a business, it is important to understand and prepare for the challenges ahead. One-on-one consulting visits with the CIEDA's Connect team will allow individuals to walk through scenarios such as, feasibility, finding a market niche, writing business, financial, and marketing plans, and choosing an ideal location within the city that aligns with future development. To schedule a time to meet email connect@growclaremore.com or call the CIEDA office at 918-283-8240.

While it is impossible to determine which new businesses will succeed and which ones will not, access to resources such as the specialized training available through Northeast Technology Center, one-on-one consulting and market data provided by CONNECT Claremore, in addition to networking opportunities like that offered by the Claremore Chamber of Commerce and Claremore Collective makes Claremore, Oklahoma an ideal place to turn dreams into a reality.
