Utah Business is Still Rockin’ – vSpring Capital

This week I turned off the bad news on TV and participated in a UVEF discussion on Early Stage Recruiting for successful emerging companies. Led by Dennis Wood at vSpring Capital, the subject focused on the vital role of getting the right executives “on the bus” to maximize success. Dennis knows his stuff.   It was interesting that his list of why executive recruits like moving to Utah is similar to the multitude of news and Public Relations campaigns orbiting Utah’s “awesomeness.”  

Why Utah?

  1. It’s close to everything
  2. It has lots of entrepreneurs with great ideas
  3. Its workforce has a wide breadth of talent
  4. It has great rankings by “bunches” of press publications
  5. It has great airport connectionsIt has critical mass for future growth 

Go Utah business!!!
