A 2015 analysis by Applied Economics conservatively estimates that OCIB programs have generated in excess of $1.9 billion in economic impact for Oklahoma. Another study documents that the Board's support of the NBA Hornets has helped produce $74 million in economic benefit for Oklahoma.

Annual outside audits, in addition to a 2005 state audit, have all concluded that OCIB has more than met its legislative mandate of attracting more than $2 of venture capital to Oklahoma companies for every $1 invested by the Board in professionally managed venture capital funds. The 2005 state audit also commended OCIB for the results of its Oklahoma Capital Access Program, serving over a thousand small businesses throughout our state.
