We do analytics
to make organizations awesome and help communities thrive.
What we do
Data services and solutions
9b analysts specialize in financial reporting, continuous auditing, and data consulting. We work with corporations, nonprofit organizations, and government entities.
Think about how many transactions your organization records in your financial system—invoices, journal entries, purchase orders—on a regular basis.
Rather than leave that information dormant, we clean, automate, and visualize your accounting data to generate valuable insights.
Our goal is to simplify the reporting on your data so you can leverage it to drive better business outcomes.
Every organization has a goal to make the most of its resources and lower risk and waste.
So, we built a solution that combines data analytics with Agile methodologies. Our solution enables teams of all sizes to perform flexible yet focused internal audits.
Our goal is to empower you to reduce the pain/cost associated with weak processes and make data-driven improvements.
As a nonprofit, you can do a lot with data: learn about your community, measure the impact of your campaign, and show donors the objective value of your work.
But it can be hard to know where to begin. We provide consulting services geared toward nonprofits, from to data collection to grant assistance.
Our goal is to help you confidently use data to reach your goals.

Who we are
A 'for-benefit' corporation
The name "9b" says a lot about us in just two characters.
The number 9 is the rarest to occur as a leading digit in a given data set, according to Benford's Law. This theory is applied when analyzing the validity of financial records.
As for the "b," our company is a benefit corporation—one of the first in Oklahoma after lawmakers passed legislation in 2019—and a pending B Corp. The benefit corporation is our legal structure, while B Corp Certification is awarded by the nonprofit B Lab. A Certified B Corp is a business that meets the "highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose."
With over a decade of experience in internal audit, data analyst Nathan Pickard founded 9b in 2018 after receiving consulting requests from local clients and learning about Certified B Corps. Nathan has spent as many years as a community organizer, leading reforesting and food resilience projects north of downtown Tulsa. He saw starting a B Corp as a sustainable way to expand these projects and support new community endeavors through financial investment and job creation.
While pursuing B Corp certification, 9b's team of analysts is making data accessible for clients through innovative services and solutions. This work allows us to bring our vision to life: to see Tulsa flourish as a resilient community.
As a benefit corporation, 9b is legally empowered to pursue positive stakeholder and community impact alongside profit. Find information about the specific organizations we support below.
The 9b team is made up of certified data analysts, programmers, auditors and accountants as well as artists, educators, and former journalists.
