SILICON SLOPES, Utah — January 17, 2017 — ObservePoint, innovative pioneer of web and mobile analytics validation software, is proud to be a sponsor at the 2017 Silicon Slopes Tech Summit. The first-ever summit will premiere January 19 – 20 at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City.
“This summit is an excellent opportunity to energize and celebrate the unique Silicon Slopes scene,” commented ObservePoint’s Co-founder and CEO, Rob Seolas. “Utah’s tech scene has rapidly grown out of a seemingly ingrained, regional culture of innovation, self-sufficiency and simply the fearlessness to take a business idea and figure out how to make it work. This event invites leaders in the tech community to stop and take a look at how far we’ve come, and be inspired about where to next push the boundaries in Silicon Slopes.”
More than a decade ago, John Pestana, co-founder of ObservePoint and then co-founder of Omniture, worked with other tech leaders in creating the Silicon Slopes nonprofit brand. For years, the Silicon Slopes organization has helped attract talent, capital, and business to the state.
This year’s first-ever Silicon Slopes Tech Summit is shaping up to be Utah’s premier tech event, boasting thousands of attendees, a concurrent schedule with the legendary Sundance Film Festival, and a packed agenda with dozens of highly prolific speakers from the tech industry.
The agenda includes prominent keynotes, workshops, awards, and diverse breakout sessions. There will also be a $300,000 Startup Competition, giving the winner exposure to investors, the public, press, and a wide array of entrepreneurial connections.
“The general perception was once that you had to leave Utah in order to create a successful start-up. I’ve never believed that. It’s just the opposite—Utah has a long, exciting history of tech innovation, especially across software and internet infrastructure solutions,” said Pestana. “The Wasatch tech corridor, Silicon Slopes, as we call it, is one of the most attractive places to build and grow a business. The tech summit offers a great opportunity to celebrate the region and the entrepreneurial spirit it carries.”
