In this episode of Horse Power I get a few minutes to speak with Alan Hall, Founder and Chairman of Grow Utah Ventures, a group dedicated to finding, training and helping entrepreneurs get their business started and grow in Utah. Hall and Grow Utah Ventures promote entrepreneurism in the community through education, networking and speed pitching opportunities. In this video Hall talks about the components of a good start-up and how he can help entrepreneurs get their business started and their products to market. (There are a few more details in the Audio version, click here to subscribe to Horse Power in iTunes.)
Alan Hall is also Founder and Chairman at MarketStar, a successful sales and marketing outsourcing company that he started in his basement in Ogden. Hall is involved in almost every level of entrapreneurship promotion in Utah, from finding venture capital dollars to having simple conversations with new entrepreneurs and answering questions. Our President, Steve Spencer, caught up with Hall last year at a Funding Universe speed pitching event and was very impressed with both his knowledge, passion and ability to help new entrapreneurs find direction.
Hall is taking his show on a much longer road over the next year with Grow America. Thanks for taking the time to talk with me Alan. It was great to meet you!
