ConnectCast E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year, Small Business Index Up, AtTask Raises $7M
Regional Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winners were announced for this year, including our friend Thomas D. Dickson for K-TEC/Blendtec, you might remember him from the www.willitblend.com campaign, Amy Rees Lewis for her work with MediConnect Global, Inc and a number of others. These winners go on to compete in the National competition. In addition, the Small Business Index is still solid. Utah currently has the highest rate of job growth in the nation and one of the lowest unemployment rates at around 2.5 percent. And AtTask raised a $7M round from Boston-based OpenView Venture Partners.
