Business Elevated Podcast (Season 5 Episode 35)
This podcast series features business and government leaders discussing what it’s like to live and work in the great state of Utah.
In this episode, host Pete Codella, managing director of business services at the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity, talks with Julie Edwards, the owner of TowPro.
Edwards shares her entrepreneurial journey and inspiration for starting TowPro, a software company that streamlines the dispatching of tow trucks for 911 dispatchers. She discusses the challenges she faced, how the company simplifies the process and saves dispatchers valuable time, and emphasizes the importance of staying up-to-date with technology that differentiates your business.
Last year, TowPro participated in the regulatory sandbox facilitated by the GOEO Office of Regulatory Relief. The sandbox allows businesses to test products, services, or business models in a controlled environment with limited regulatory requirements.
Edwards also shares her journey as a woman entrepreneur in both the towing and tech industries, details lessons she learned along the way, highlights the supportive and collaborative nature of the Utah business community, and much more.
