Silicon Slopes – Winter 2018

The Winter 2018 issue of Silicon Slopes magazine includes a cover story on 5 For The Fight, a global fundraising campaign, and a feature on the UTC Hall of Fame 2017.

Why We Fight:

5 For The Fight is a global fundraising campaign started by Qualtrics to eradicate cancer. This is the story of how to fight.

Cancer is both beginning and end. A small lump detected under skin, the cold anxiety of an exam room, white blow on a dark x-ray – the instant of change. Life as it was now ended, replaced by the understanding of what it means to fight. Cancer is real and brutal, the indiscriminate attack of cells on microscopic levels. And whether direct or indirect, it will touch everyone – the beginning of a new life, the fight for survival, the end of all that was.

UTC Hall of Fame 2017:

On November 10, 2017, three of Utah’s finest entrepreneurs were inducted into the Utah Technology Council Hall of Fame: Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, REES Capital Managing Partner Amy Rees Anderson and Pluralsight CEO Aaron Skonnard. They join a long list of people who have made valuable contributions to Utah’s business community, forming the solid foundation of present-day Silicon Slopes.
