ABOUT THE EVENT

The Catalytic Capital Demo Day reconvenes for the second year, this time to highlight leading female and minority entrepreneurs. Fifteen entrepreneurs will take the stage to present their solutions for the toughest problems.

Less than 2% of $1.1 billion venture capital raised in Utah in 2017 went to female-founded companies.

 

Meanwhile, Utah continues to be recognized as one of the best states for entrepreneurs.
