I helped drive the mission of Silicon Slopes, to promote Utah technology and build the startup ecosystem. I wrote about Utah startups, telling the stories of funding, deal flow, failure, exits, acquisitions and entrepreneurial successes.
I also helped build the ecosystem through community events, such as executive lunches and startup panels. I co-founded Utah Tech Week, Utah's first technology and startup conference.
