Park City is a great place to live and do work. People love the mountain life where the mentality is ‘work hard, play hard.’ Here in PC, work-life balance isn’t a goal, it’s a given.
Most Parkites engage in some version of the following scenario: bike up a mountain before heading in for a morning product development meeting; then get in a gym session at lunch. There is a feeling of both accomplishment and empowerment that easily transitions from the play side of life to the work side of life, and those feelings enable business-people to feel like they can conquer the challenges that may lie ahead.
A huge advantage that local businesses have is a close proximity to the ‘silicon slopes’ of Salt Lake City, a hub of technological innovation. Another great advantage of Salt Lake City is the convenient airport access that allows truly global businesses and businessmen to live and work in Park City. Multiple global, multi-million dollar companies are based in Park City, and they use the surrounding areas for the benefits of their business and their employees.
Perhaps Park City’s most attractive feature for local businesses, the Park City Angels invest millions of dollars into startups with promising futures based in and around the local area. Founded in 2008, the Angels have around fifty members who have sixty-five active projects, and they have invested fifty-five million dollars since their founding. Whether you are interested in joining the Angels or need help from the Angels to launch your company, the local business landscape is great for everyone.
