From Qualtics to Pluralsight, this last year was a knock out for the Utah tech industry. Noted by Josh James, founder of the American Fork-based Domo—the cloud-based, business analytics platform, “2018 was a banner year for Silicon Slopes. The most notable financial events in Utah included the influx of new venture capital, two notable IPOs and the Qualtrics acquisition by SAP. All this activity should help us continue to draft new talent to our state, however, we need to stay focused on key issues that will keep Utah such an attractive place to live, particularly clean air initiatives.”
Highlighted by multiple media outlets both local and national, it is no secret that the influx of tech in Utah is making it more and more of an attractive place to live. Big companies like Amazon and Adobe continue to acknowledge this truth by breaking ground on massive multi-million dollar facilities in our very own Silicon Slopes adding countless jobs to the local economy.
With more brilliant ideas turning in to the latest startup, it is easy to see now as the golden era of tech in the state of Utah. Kiln is poised to support this era with locations in both Lehi and Salt Lake City, where members are permitted to flow between the two for meetings, Waffle Wednesdays and, of course, different Bevi machines.
2019 continues to show immense promise as another twelve months dedicated to pulling Utah further center on the national stage as an incredible place to start a business and live. We are proud to have a front row seat to the action!
