In January 2024, WalletHub again named Utah the No. 1 best state to start a business. Utah is the startup state.
Utah provides fertile soil for modern innovators and entrepreneurs. As the country’s fastest-growing state, with a well-educated workforce and thriving economy, Utah’s mountains, valleys, deserts, and plateaus provide the perfect environment to nourish and champion the startup and entrepreneurial spirit.
The state’s growth, unparalleled quality of life, government support for small businesses, and access to startup networks and capital attract doers and innovative thinkers to Utah’s communities.
Gov. Cox will address Utah's unique startup ecosystem and make the case for why Utah's the startup capital of the world.
