A taco-selling business underwritten by Youth Services of Tulsa captured the Social Enterprise leg of the Tulsa StartUp Series on Wednesday night at 36 Degrees North.
Wes Rose of T-Town Tacos will receive $2,500 for product advancement, a three-month membership to 36 Degrees North, a spot in the Venture Assessment Program at i2E and a mentor with weekly availability for at least three months. Rose, 32, also earned a spot into the semifinals of Demo Day, which offers a grand prize of $15,000.
The StartUp Series, which stretches into November, is powered by the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation, with support from Cox Business, Cox Media and Riata Center for Entrepreneurship at OSU. The series was designed to deliver resources and mentoring opportunities to entrepreneurs.
