Oklahoma is well positioned as a location for both start-up and attraction of technology-based companies, according to the Roundtable’s October keynote speaker, Paycom CEO Chad Richison.
Over 120 Roundtable members and guests attended the October 4th meeting in which Richison discussed his company success and opportunities for Oklahoma. The payroll and human resources software company employs over 2000 and is ranked fourth on Forbes magazine's 2017 Fast Tech 25, a list of America's fastest-growing publicly traded technology companies.
Richison said, “If someone was looking to start a tech company, they’d be hard pressed to find a better place that Oklahoma.”
