Huntsman Venture Forum

March 23, 2018 | 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Perry Pavilion, Huntsman Hall, Utah State University

Developing The Future

At the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business, our purpose is to be an engine of growth for our community, the state, the nation, and the world, and to enable our students to lead lives of meaning and contribution. The Huntsman Venture Forum (HVF) is designed to be a gathering place for connecting innovative thought leaders, business practitioners, and aspiring students. The Forum will be a place where regional business and community leaders convene for a day of sharing ideas and networking.

The Huntsman Venture forum seeks to leverage unique opportunities that exist within a world-class academic setting to be a catalyst for individuals and organizations to build and sustain a capacity for value creation.

Forum Topics

Presenters will include public policy leaders, angel investors, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, business owners, lawyers, accountants, bankers, and community leaders. They will share advice, information and strategies for both surviving and thriving in today’s economy.

Recently we have found ourselves with the opportunity to create more value by focusing on strengthening the internal student experience within the Huntsman School. As a result of this strategic refocus, we will not be offering our traditional conference series. Going forward, the Operational Excellence conference will be managed by the Shingo Institute (more information is available at The Human Resource (Utah SHRM Crossroads) conference will continue to be hosted by the Utah Human Resources State Council (more information is available at We will not be offering the Accounting, Data Analytics and Leadership conferences this year.
