UVU Opens Business Resource Center

Orem - UTAH VALLEY UNIVERSITY (UVU) opened its Business Resource Center (BRC) in early January. The new center will not only have a new location, but also a broader role with regard to economic development. The center will serve as a one-stop shop for entrepreneurs and businesses in Utah, Summit and Wasatch counties, offering a variety of services that capitalize on the center’s access to the numerous resources, programs and activities provided by UVU faculty, staff and students.

As a business incubator, the center will spur Utah’s economic and business development by helping to create new enterprises, grow existing companies and produce new jobs. The center will be not only a business development incubator to bolster UVU’s substantial economic impact to the state, but also to serve as a prime resource for individuals and entities throughout the region whose viable ideas, products and technology innovation can stimulate the state’s economy.

“The Business Resource Center is a greenhouse where the seeds of economic activity are sown and nourished,” says Steve Roy, UVU associate vice president for economic development. Housed within UVU’s center are a wide array of entrepreneurial resources and business startup services. They include an economic development office, a technology commercialization office under the direction of Kent Millington, the state’s largest Small Business Development Center, representatives from the Utah Science Technology Research (USTAR) initiative and the nationally ranked Manufacturing Extension Partnership. UVU’s Woodbury School of Business and Entrepreneurship Institute will also assist the BRC in its efforts to create businesses and jobs.

“The Business Resource Center is a key component in our economic development strategy that will help grow the community, region and state economy while complementing initiatives laid out by the governor’s office,” says UVU President  Matthew Holland. “At a time when the need for economic development is at a premium, the BRC will marshal the community’s and the University’s considerable resources in terms of faculty, staff, students and entrepreneurs while providing greater engaged learning opportunities for our students.”
