September 6, 2022

The Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity (Go Utah) recently announced a partnership with the Utah Small Business Administration to help small businesses navigate Utah’s entrepreneurship ecosystem.

The Utah Business Bridge is a series of quarterly virtual networking events connecting small business owners with key resources available statewide. These virtual events will be held quarterly and cover topics including:

  • Resources for women entrepreneurs
  • Launching a business
  • Capital access
  • Aerospace, defense, and government contracting
  • Resources for diverse entrepreneurs

Small businesses participating in these events will receive information about the latest resources and have opportunities to network with providers in virtual breakout rooms.

“Go Utah’s excited about the Utah Business Bridge networking events where small businesses will have opportunities to connect with vital resources and helpful individuals,” said Ryan Starks, managing director of business services. “This is an exciting opportunity for us to inform businesses statewide about resources that can help them prosper and thrive.”

“The SBA Utah District Office has partnered for many years with Go Utah, and we’re thrilled to bring this new initiative forward,” said Marla Trollan, SBA Utah district director. “There are numerous organizations in the state that provide free support to businesses during various stages of development. The Business Bridge webinar series provides a much-needed platform to connect businesses throughout Utah to these valuable resources.”
