Going from challenge to launch

1. CHALLENGE SUBMISSION

Oklahomans enter challenges faced by government services that should have technological solutions at innovate.ok.gov.

2. SOLUTION EVALUATION

Technologists see the challenges on innovate.ok.gov and react with solutions — full-fledged responses by local developers rising to face the issues identified by Oklahomans.

3. THE COLLABORATORIUM

Teams of citizens, technologists, the Oklahoma Office of Management and Enterprise Services and other government agencies work together turning the best ideas into the best solutions.

4. THE
BIZ LAB

The prototype stage begins, and the team meets with the Oklahoma Center of Science and Technology (OCAST) and other partners that support Oklahoma entrepreneurship.

5. THE
LAUNCH

A business is created, partnerships are formed, cutting-edge services are delivered and state technology spending is transferred from legacy problems to innovative solutions.

Fostering Innovation in Government.
Creating Startup Companies.
Empowering Citizens.

Citizens, government and technology collide to solve state government challenges by finding innovative ways to leverage technology and support the tech startup sector in our state.  Anyone can issue a challenge to be solved with technology and Oklahoma’s technologists and entrepreneurs respond.  Through partnerships with OCAST, i2E and OMES these great ideas can be turned into winning new startup companies that have the ability to reshape how state government works while growing new businesses that provide high tech jobs.
