“Utah’s economic dynasty is evident through businesses of all shapes and sizes,” said Val Hale, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “We congratulate Utah’s team of winning entrepreneurs for their hard work, innovation and success.”
This year’s 10 ten fastest growing companies include Crest Financial, Boostability, Onsite Care, Inc., Xima Software, eLearning Brothers LLC and Simplicity Laser.
