On Monday, government leaders, including Lt. Governor Spencer Cox, held a press conference announcing the launch of planning efforts to redevelop the site of the Utah State Prison (The Point) in Draper. Many of our industry leaders are participating on The Point’s Education, Research and Innovation working group – Randy Rasmussen (former BioFire CEO), Gary Crocker (Crocker Ventures), David Bearss (CEO, Tolero) and Jeffrey Nelson (President, Nelson Labs).

The Point offers unprecedented potential to create an innovation hub that fosters technological advancement, facilitates mixed-use urban areas and preserves parks and open space. View press conference here.
