This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Being an entrepreneur can be challenging, but having mentors, networks and resources can make a significant difference in a startup’s success. That’s why the Salt Lake Chamber and other Utah leaders have launched the Wasatch Innovation Network. Here’s Director Elisabeth Nebeker with more.  


The Wasatch Innovation Network is designed to propel Utah even further as an international leader in innovation, technology transfer, manufacturing, and marketing, by offering support to businesses and entrepreneurs throughout the state.  

To raise awareness of the effort, we are launching the WIN100 which will promote the top 100 venture entrepreneurs in Utah. We are actively seeking nominees who are most likely to play an active role in building and driving high-growth business in the next two to five years. 

Nominations for this year’s inaugural Wasatch Innovation Network Top 100 Entrepreneurs — the WIN100 — are now open. Submission is simple; just go to

Those named to the WIN100 will have the opportunity to network with peers and partner organizations, and see their profiles raised across the broader innovation ecosystem, particularly among in-state and out-of-state investors.  


If you know a venture entrepreneur who deserves recognition, submit their name at and the Wasatch Innovation Network will do the rest. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
