In case you missed one or more of the Salt Lake Chamber’s Utah Business Reports on KSL News Radio, here is a recap of what we talked about this week.
Utah Business Week is celebrating its 32nd year this summer.
The week-long business camp is held on the campus of Utah State University from July 28 through August 3.
At Utah Business week, high school students interested in business get hands on experience building a business and competing with their peers.
Students will learn first-hand from business leaders what it takes to succeed in business, from marketing to business ethics.
Utah Business week costs just 100-dollars—that’s less money than what you would pay to feed a teenager for a week!
So if you have a student who will be a high school junior or senior in the fall of 2013, go to www.UtahBusinessWeek.com today. Space is limited and registration closes this Friday, June 14.
33 small business owners recently graduated from Utah’s inaugural Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program.
Eleven sessions and more than one hundred hours of training from Salt Lake Community College supported business growth by boosting operations and creating job opportunities.
Over the last five months, the business owners who participated created more than 100 jobs.
Businesses ranging in industries participated and 17 of the 33 were women-owned, which is the largest group of women that have participated in a single cohort since the program launched in 2009.
10,000 Small Businesses is a $500 million investment that gives entrepreneurs greater access to education, financial capital and business support services. More than 1,300 businesses have participated nationwide.
While the nation is stuck in a slow recovery, Utah’s economic status is one to envy. The sixth edition of the “Rich States, Poor States” study recently listed Utah has having the Best Economic Outlook in the nation.
This is the sixth year in a row Utah has received this ranking.
Fifteen important state policy variables go into the Economic Outlook rankings. Utah ranked in the top 10 in almost half of them—making it one of the best performing states.
“Rich States, Poor States” also listed Utah as having the third best Economic Performance overall, coming in behind Texas and Nevada. The combined scores give Utah an overall number one ranking.
Ten professional cycling teams have accepted invitations to compete at the 2013 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. The race this year will take place August 6 – 11, starting in southern Utah.
Many of the cycling teams are among the best in the world. Miller Sports Properties COO Steve Miller says cycling fans should be excited to see such a solid group of top-rated pro teams from around the globe.
The Tour of Utah was elevated to a 2.1-rated stage race by the UCI in 2011. It continues to be one of the top stage races in North America.
The Tour of Utah is still looking for volunteers to help with the week-long race. You can find out more at TourOfUtah.com.
