The BBC Took a Trip to Utah to Discover the State's Secret to Success

Real Estate Agent with Chuck Willman 9334967-SA00

BBC Radio filed a report about the sudden success the state of Utah has found in the business world.

They spoke to entrepreneurs small and large as well as immigrants and policy makers.

There was a time when Utah business folks seeking to grow would fly to New York, Boston or San Francisco to seek funding. Now the venture capital groups find themselves flying here in search of the next big thing.

Upon arrival they find a diverse workforce with and entrepreneurial attitude as well as over 100,000 college students who may be more gung-ho to stay than go.

It makes for an interesting listen.

The audio report can be found here: The Secret to Utah's Success - BBC Radio.

That sounds like good news for Utah!!!!  It's refreshing to see other places being recognized as a good place for growth and business.

Kathy Streib - Utah is currently one of the fastest growing states in the nation- and "jobs" has plenty to do with it. It's nice to see it grow but with growth it's also becoming more challenging to find the perfect place. For agents, it requires that we really know our state.

Chuck and Lucy, What a boost to have a major world broadcast feature your area.  One of those places in the states that I have yet to visit.  All the best.
