For the first time, the 2020 Utah Economic and Energy Summit, in partnership with Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute at the University of Utah, will include a Startup Pitch competition sponsored by Clarke Capital Partners. The UES Startup Pitch is a speed pitch challenge where entrepreneurs pitch a panel of judges their best ideas. After a qualification round at Lassonde, three final contestants present their ideas at the Summit to a panel of experts, including Governor Herbert, and UES audience members.
All Startup Pitch finalists receive a cash prize and two tickets to the Economic and Energy Summit. The people’s choice cash prize comes with bragging rights as the top new venture idea from Governor Herbert’s 2020 Utah Economic and Energy Summit.
