Startup Summit

Calling all startups and future business owners! Join Utah Business at Kiln SLC on September 8th, 2022 for a deep dive into what it takes to get your business funded. A panel of industry experts will walk us through what it takes to be an investable startup. They will provide us with the important metrics investors look for and homework to do before looking for funding.

After we learn from those who know seed funding best, watch the process happen LIVE at our Startup Summit Pitch Competition. Our Pitch Competition will be judged by key funding players in Utah. You will get to hear the judges’ questions and see what a well-prepared pitch looks like.

Not quite ready to pitch? No worries! We will host an hour of exclusive Office Hours with our experts. We will send out the signup schedule a week before the event for you to select a 10-minute, one-on-one session to discuss your business. This is your chance to get real feedback from the people you want to be in front of.

After the pitch competition, join us for after-hours networking. Take time to meet other business owners and startups or mingle with that Venture Capital firm you’ve had your eye on.

This is an event that could change the trajectory of your business!
