Tyrance Billingsley II grew up in Tulsa. He will admit, he was an average student, but had big dreams. His love of the Tulsa community kept him close to home; attending Tulsa Community College followed by Oklahoma State University in Tulsa. During that time, he continually thought about his core dream of helping the Black community in North Tulsa. It took years of him working on his idea, but his hard work paid-off when he launched “Black Tech Street,” a name honoring Black Wall Street in Tulsa. This podcast visits with Tyrance about growing his idea into a full-scale business, why he chose to focus on the tech industry and another creative venture he is a part of. He is making a difference in our community and beyond!
