CCEW-LargeVentureSpur is excited to announce Community Open Office Hours at The University of Oklahoma Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth (CCEW)! The CCEW offers opportunities for students to gain practical experience to promote the entrepreneurial spirit and assist in developing Oklahoma’s economy.

VentureSpur will hold office hours at The CCEW on Friday, March 28, 2014 from 3:00-6:00 p.m.

This year, rather than holding all of our Open Office Hours at The DEC and The Exchange, VentureSpur is venturing out to locations throughout the US to hold Open Office Hours.

Community Open Office Hours provide entrepreneurs the opportunity to sit down for a private, one-on-one 30-minute consultation with VentureSpur Managing Director, Kraettli L. Epperson.

We encourage any entrepreneurs considering applying to the 2014 Acceleration Program or any entrepreneurs who would like to receive feedback on a startup idea to sign up for a 30-minute session on our events page.

To see the Community Open Office Hours schedule and to sign up, visit our events calendar.

Interested in applying to the 2014 Accelerator Program? An initial application need only include a resume, business outline and a Powerpoint presentation or executive summary of some kind. Receiving these prior to scheduling an Open Office Hours meeting helps VentureSpur to provide serious applicants with the most attention and allows us to make the best use of your time by reviewing your startup beforehand.  Please email materials to for review prior to your scheduled meeting.
