The Utah Venture Entrepreneur Forum (UVEF) is a non-profit that has been recognizing Utah entrepreneurs for 25 years. UVEF’s Hot 100 Award is sponsored by EPIC Ventures and recognizes the 100 most talked about companies in Utah. This award is exclusively for companies under 5 years old and it’s exciting to get to see all of the young companies that are changing the world of business each year.
We were thrilled to find out that TaskEasy was among the top 100 companies this year because there are so many companies in Utah doing amazing things. We immediately let TaskEasy employees and followers know and unabashedly asked for their vote. The final results were determined by public voting (⅔) and internal UVEF voting (⅓) and TaskEasy made it to the top 10! We are honored to be listed amongst some of the most innovative companies in Utah.
