A benefit corporation

Established in 2018, 9b is a data analytics consulting company based in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

With over 25 years of combined experience, we provide wide-ranging data analysis and visualization services to help organizations discover value, make decisions, and reach goals. We work with nonprofits, corporations, and government entities. 


9b operates as a benefit corporation—one of the first in Oklahoma after state lawmakers passed legislation in 2019. This means we focus our resources as much on our clients as on our community.

About our name

The name "9b" says a lot about our company in just two characters.


The number 9 is the least likely 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," we aim to become a certified B Corp, which is a business that meets the "highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose."
