Provo, UT-based Raser Technologies has raised $20 million in a private placement. The company went public in October 2003 and has an amazing two year stock chart.
Enterpreneurs in Utah should track publicly traded and fast growth Utah companies, so they can know who they can learn the ropes from. I have 44 public Utah companies in my MyYahoo Finance tracking portfolio. Job seekers should keep track of these fast growing companies as well. Two good lists of fast growing companies are the Utah 100 (awarded by Mountain West Capital Network every year) and the Top 25 Under 5 (awarded by Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum every year.) I like to track all these companies for business networking purposes and to find great speakers for the Utah Valley Entrepeneurial Forum and other business events.
