Slopes Serves and Hyperquake Creative Sprint

Silicon Slopes is constantly developing new ways to help Utah’s entrepreneurs thrive. As the heart of Utah’s startup community, we often see great business concepts succeed or fail based on the strength of the brand story they tell. 

 

Our Slopes Serves initiative, in partnership with Hyperquake, is proud to introduce an innovative program to serve Utah’s entrepreneurs: Slopes Serves + Hyperquake Creative Sprint. Between April 19-May 22, 2022, we will be welcoming early-stage, Utah-based startups to apply to receive professional creative services and support in crafting their brand’s strategy, story and execution. 

 

One startup will be selected based on their business concept, scalable market potential, and the likely impact of brand services on their growth. Because Silicon Slopes and Hyperquake are committed to investing in the Utah entrepreneurial community, these collaborative, creative services will be provided at no cost to the startup. Entrepreneurship isn’t just about taking chances — it’s also about giving chances. We are proud to offer this powerful chance to a driven, deserving young company.
