Business Consultations

Connect with the Commerce Regional Development Team.

Regional Development Specialists are available for individual and small group meetings to offer solutions to challenges and tools and resources to help your company thrive.

Growing our own.

Our Regional Development Specialists (RDS) meet regularly with business owners in their regions to understand their needs and connect them with services and programs. Each RDS also develops and maintains relationships with civic and government leaders to ensure Commerce understands the needs and challenges of each community.

Your Commerce Contact

Commerce works with Oklahoma companies to understand their challenges and growth opportunities. By connecting directly with companies, we can provide assistance in areas such as export opportunities, workforce training and more.

Incentive Specialists

When working with local businesses, the RDS team provides information regarding incentives that could be utilized to help a company grow. Our team can also provide information about grants that might be used in partnership with a community to increase jobs.

Valuable Partnerships

One of the most important roles the RDS play is simply providing a local connection to Commerce and other state agencies. When a business or community does not know where to go or who to call for assistance, the RDS can connect them directly to the agency, business, or organization to provide the assistance they need.
