The Recovering Economy has Unleashed Acquisition Activity

By Spencer Sutherland

January 14, 2014

The Miller Group is not the only Utah organization that is expanding: Pluralsight, a developer training platform, recently acquired a Chicago-based training company for $23 million; Mindshare Technologies, a company that conducts automated customer service surveys, acquired social media-focused Empathica, headquartered in Toronto; and C7 Data Centers, the Bluffdale-based data co-location provider, purchased IngetraTechs Corp., another Utah company.

Though the final numbers have not yet been released, MountainWest Capital Network anticipates 2013 will rival the strength of 2012. “Entrepreneurs are starting great companies that are getting funded, we have more local investors than we’ve ever had, and there is a lot of money coming from out of state as well,” Chase says. “Utah is a great state to start and build a company, and a great place to invest.”
