The program created nearly 600 new jobs, adding about $ 62 million in revenue to the local economy, according to the study. This means that the program generated an estimated local income of $ 13.77 for every dollar spent by the foundation.
Tulsa Remote’s impact on the city’s national reputation, however, is not so easy to measure. But the anecdotal evidence seems positive.
In Tulsa’s media coverage since early 2017, positive economic terms such as ‘opportunity’, ‘growth’, ‘rejuvenate’, ‘development’, ‘thrive’ and ‘diversified’ have appeared in more than 38,000 press articles, according to the Innovation Group’s Economic Analysis. And Tulsa Remote itself has been mentioned in at least 140 online and print news articles, with media coverage continuing to grow this year, according to the report.
“We haven’t shown any signs of slowing down,” said Harlan, noting that more than 30,000 people have submitted requests to Tulsa Remote this year.
