Utah has a dynamic and thriving community of startups. These companies represent the future business success of Utah and beyond. While many fortune 500 companies recruit regularly at BYU, most local startups do not get this opportunity. USM bridges that gap. The purposes of USM are to:
1. Build awareness and excitement about Utah’s dynamic and thriving community of startups
2. Give BYU students exclusive access to the local entrepreneurial ecosystem
3. Provide career opportunities for BYU students at Utah startup companies
4. Educate Utah startup companies about the talent sourcing opportunities at BYU
