Salt Lake City’s tech market is taking off. The tech movement has been called Silicon Slopes, and while there has been a recent surge in activity, the market is built on a strong computer science industry dating back decades. As the latest milestone, Collective Medical is opening its headquarters in Cottonwood Corporate, which the company says will accommodate more growth. The city’s economic growth and talented labor pool—from the University of Utah—will propel more tech industry growth.

“Global tech companies such as Adobe, EMC, Micron, Intel, Facebook and Microsoft all operate from Salt Lake City headquarters,” Bryan Welch of Colliers International tells GlobeSt.com. “Tech growth has undoubtedly put Silicon Slopes on an international map. However, economic diversity and strong business fundamentals remain the key to Utah’s success. The state has an educated workforce, favorable public policies, a high quality of living and advantages when it comes to labor costs. All of these factors offer an incredible opportunity for tech companies looking to increase market share and expand global operations within an environment that favors commercial growth.”
