ss-banner-1

Silicon Slopes is the voice, hub, and heart of Utah’s startup and tech community. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization empowering Utah’s startup and tech community to learn, connect, and serve in an effort to make entrepreneurship and opportunity in Silicon Slopes open and accessible to all.

Spanning from Logan to St. George, Silicon Slopes is a state-wide organization and the official moniker of Utah’s startup and tech community. Thanks to the Silicon Slopes community, Utah is a vibrant, diverse, global innovation hub with some of the greatest entrepreneurs and companies in the world.

Silicon Slopes reaches a unique audience of more than 250,000 on a monthly basis through our various media channels and properties. We organize and host more than 200 events annually, including Silicon Slopes Tech Summit, the largest and most prominent tech event in Utah with more than 15,000 attendees. Silicon Slopes events attract more than 40,000 total attendees over the course of a year.

With more than 6,500 startup and tech companies in Utah, Silicon Slopes is home to entrepreneurs and leaders who have earned global recognition through hard work, a focus on building exceptional companies, and a willingness to give back and serve others.

Silicon Slopes believes opportunity only exists to all if we’re willing to extend it to all. We have a responsibility to ensure the Silicon Slopes don’t rise while the rest of Utah falls or remains stagnant. Entrepreneurship is often just as much about chances that are given as it is about chances that are taken. Silicon Slopes strives to give a chance to anyone with a desire to take and earn it. Once earned, an expectation is set to reach back and give a chance to someone new.

While we’re making real progress toward becoming more welcoming and open to entrepreneurs of every stripe and background, there is still a long row to hoe before the battle is won. The struggle to break into this game is all too real for those who can’t even get a ticket. We must assume a leading role in this effort. Silicon Slopes is an organization and community that is open and welcoming to everyone without regard to religion, race, gender, class, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or origin of birth.

Welcome to Silicon Slopes. Welcome to your community.
