About this event

The State of Silicon Slopes events are meant to bring the Silicon Slopes community together to go over what we've done as an organization recently and what our plans are for the future.

With the recent unification of Silicon Slopes and Utah Technology Council, we are visiting various Silicon Slopes chapters across the state to talk about the unification and how the combined organization will work going forward. Come enjoy lunch and hear from Silicon Slopes Executive Director Clint Betts and UTC Director of Opertations for UTC.Our next Silicon Slopes Ogden-Farmington event will be held at Pluralsight's East Headquarters in Farmington UT on June 18 at noon. Lunch is free for those who RSVP below.

Clint Betts: Clint is the executive director and editor-in-chief of Silicon Slopes and Beehive Startups. In 2013, Betts founded Beehive Startups to tell the stories of Utah entrepreneurs and startups. In 2016, Beehive Startups created a new nonprofit organization and joined forces with Silicon Slopes inside of that entity to empower Utah's tech community to learn, connect, and serve. In addition to his duties as executive director and editor-in-chief, Betts also hosts the Deseret News Silicon Slopes Hour on KSL News Radio every Sunday at 7am; is the publisher of the quarterly Silicon Slopes Magazine; and founded Startup Santa, a state-wide children's book drive to help eradicate childhood illiteracy. A Utah native, Betts studied journalism and political science at Utah Valley University and resides in the Beehive State with his wife and four kids.


Elizabeth Converse is a communications and advocacy expert, and the current Director of Operation for the Utah Technology Council. Having worked in government and politics for 15 years, she enjoys representing tech on Capitol Hill under the newly joined banner of Silicon Slopes/UTC. Originally from Oklahoma, Elizabeth moved to Utah nearly a decade ago, and enjoys exploring the outdoors with her husband, son, and two furbabies.
