Silicon Slopes is more than just home to Utah-based startups.
According to Forbes, it’s now the cloud’s capital hub.
In recent years, the Silicon Slopes rose to levels of tech prowess, not unlike the Silicon Valley, which has often been the tech center of the United States, Forbes reported.
With companies like Domo, Qualtrics and Pluralsight on the rise, Silicon Slopes has climbed in success, Forbes reported. Utah’s mix of sales experience, business-friendly tax policies and educated workforce has pushed the state forward.
Silicon Slopes has seen additional success from its cloud-based ventures, too.
"We all have a chance to do something great," Qualtrics CEO Ryan Smith told Forbes. "We know the enormity of what we are doing."
