An event happening in North Logan on Wednesday is for anyone interested in the start-up business and tech world. It’s entitled “The State of Start-ups and Tech in Cache Valley”. It is part of a broader project that has taken off in other parts of Utah already called Silicon Slopes. Chase Anderson, the director of development and marketing at Utah State University, was a guest on KVNU’s For the People program on Tuesday and said the Lehi-based company is starting to reach out beyond the Wasatch Front.
“They’ve reached out to us based on our outreach and the efforts that we’ve tried to make to support the community start-ups and entrepreneurship here. They reached out to me and asked me if I’d be willing to start to put together a Logan chapter of Silicon Slopes that would host events and really try to bring together (the) community to support what’s being built here in our area,” explained Anderson.
The event will be held at 1 p.m at Vivint Smart Home at 1400 north 635 East. According to the website SiliconSlopes.com, those attending will learn from four dynamic companies that call Cache Valley home. The event hopes to show that whether you’re in hard technology, software, or building a consumer product or e-commerce company, it can be built and thrive in Cache Valley.
Those speaking include Mel Torrie of Autonomous Solutions Inc (ASI), Nathan Millecam of Electric Power Systems (EP Systems), Tyler Tolson of Denik and Nathan Ruben of SmartBeat. The event is free but you can get tickets in advance at SiliconSlopes.com
