    Grow Utah Ventures is dedicated to providing education, financial, and management support to entrepreneurs and businesses along the Wasatch Front and Northern Utah. Through partners and private members that are associated with Grow Utah Ventures, the firm is able to help a wide range of businesses transition from the seed to the early stages of business growth. Grow Utah sponsors, or is part of, many educational events and seminars to help entrepreneurs. Although Grow Utah Ventures originally started as an investment fund, the funding side is now separate and Grow Utah Ventures is no longer invests in startup businesses. Alan Hall's new investment fund is now called Island Park Investments (see profile). After surveying the entrepreneur environment in Utah, Grow Utah Ventures saw some needs and decided to create a better business incubator called the eStation. Located in Kaysville, Ogden, & Vernal, these incubators are the first private-public partner incubators in the state with the express purpose to grow businesses and further the vision that drives Grow Utah Ventures.
