Utah tech is killing it and showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
That’s the nutshell takeaway from a just-released report from the University of Utah’s Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute.
The expansive study is the result of a two-year effort that dug into the depth and breadth of the state’s tech sector, parsing its micro- and macro-economic impacts, historical trends and how Utah compares to the rest of the country when viewed through the filter of high-tech industry performance and growth.
The report also highlights issues that have accompanied tech’s stellar growth arc in the state, including data showing workforce diversity is lagging well behind national averages.
