LEHI — Gov. Gary Herbert, GOED Director Val Hale and Domo CEO Josh James joined Silicon Slopes Executive Director Clint Betts Wednesday to cut the ribbon on a new, 5,000-square-foot office/event space for the nonprofit advocacy organization of the state's technology and innovation industries.
The new space, donated by STACK Real Estate and located near Thanksgiving Point, will serve as Silicon Slopes' headquarters and will also be able to accommodate events, classes and networking gatherings.
Silicon Slopes is engaged in numerous activities, including hosting and sponsoring the annual Silicon Slopes Summit, aimed at bringing together the state's tech community. This year's summit took place in Salt Lake City over two days and included influential keynote speakers, workshops, a startup competition and entertainment. The event was scheduled to coincide with the Sundance Film Festival in January.
Silicon Slopes was founded over a decade ago by James, previously of Omniture, to promote the interests of Utah's tech community.
