About Silicon Slopes
The Greatest Tech on Earth
SiliconSlopes.com provides resources and a free database for technology companies, people, investors and organizations associated with Utah, that anyone can add to or edit.
Silicon Slopes was conceived for the purpose of promoting Utah’s growing technology community. After sitting through numerous meetings strategizing ways to promote Utah’s image (all of them leading to no action), Omniture Founder and CEO, Josh James decided to initiate a branding campaign for Utah’s tech community in the form of Silicon Slopes. In recent months, Silicon Slopes has made giant strides from “pet project” to a movement that is growing exponentially.
