Tulsa’s CEO’s Night Out is Catching on and Growing
The CEO’s Night Out, which Katina Walker started in her beauty supply location, Roots Barber & Beauty Supply (Roots), has grown and has been a big hit for business owners in Tulsa. CEO’s Night Out was created to help promote Tulsa’s founders, entrepreneurs, CEO’s and visionaries. She worked to form a solid community of entrepreneurs who were passionate about helping others and diversity and inclusion. A primary goal of CEO’s Night Out is to create networking opportunities, which include education, information, and testimonial business journeys. The space also allows the attendees to share and discuss challenges and solutions.
Attendees’ demographics comprise different cultural, economic and social backgrounds, which provides a broad scope of information. Katina met several of the entrepreneurs as she created opportunities for local entrepreneurs to showcase their products in Roots. She also became known as “Tulsa Entrepreneur HUB.”
Katina and her husband opened their first storefront in 2019, “Preme Cannabis Company LLC.” Her second business name was given to her in a dream, “Roots Barber & Beauty Supply.” So in 2020, she opened the second storefront and began making her products of sugar scrubs and body butters as therapeutic supplements. She creates products for men, women, and children.
CEO’s Night Out has collaborated with The Greenwood Beat – WFPG to create “CEO’s Night Out Meets The Greenwood Beat” and will host events every second Saturday of the month from 4-7pm at the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Tulsa, 415 S. Boston Ave, Tulsa, Oklahoma.
