Salt Lake City, Utah

Salt Lake City, often called “Silicon Slopes,” is located approximately 45 minutes from Provo. According to CB Insights, Silicon Slopes has at least five companies valued at more than $1 billion, and the concentration of these so-called “unicorns” is beat only by California, New York, and Massachusetts. Data analytics, cloud computing, and e-commerce companies have thrived in the region. The area boasts a collaborative, rather than competitive, culture with companies historically bootstrapping rather than receiving funding, through venture capital is now not as Utah-shy as it used to be.
