SILICON SLOPES, UTAH, November 27, 2012— The Utah TECH-X sales and growth mentoring program, sponsored by Utah Valley University’s Business Resource Center (BRC), has named Randall Scott, Director of Client Services for Snapp Conner PR, as the program’s 2012 TECH-X Mentor of the Year.
Under the direction of Executive Director Roger Andrus and with assistance from Griffin Hill, SEBO Marketing and regional business leaders, the TECH-X Sales Acceleration course is a free 12-week program that teaches fundamentals in Lead Generation, Public Relations, Lead Flow Optimization, and Sales Flow Optimization and Closing. The course is free of charge for a limited enrollment of 10-12 participating companies for each bi-annual course.
Randall Scott, a senior executive for Snapp Conner PR, has participated in TECH-X for the past two years, providing public relations and business strategy counsel to companies in the TECH-X program. TECH-X recently named Scott its 2012 Mentor of the Year in recognition of above and beyond service he has provided to the companies who attend.
Said Andrus: “We have developed a truly great program, but its strongest value is the quality of the business community mentors like Randy Scott, who have been instrumental in giving these businesses the same opportunities big and established companies have.”
“Having Randy in our program these past two years has brought tremendous value to these participants, due to both his role with one of the state’s premier PR agencies and also his direct background in startup companies’ business concerns,” Andrus continued.
“Randy has played a key roll in the success of our program.”
Now going into its eighth season, Andrus reports that 25 companies graduated from TECH-X in the past year (over the past 3 sessions), producing 23 full time jobs and approximately the same in part time positions. These businesses will produce $20 million in revenue in 2012, up by about $5 million from 2011. Fifty percent of 2012 participants experienced at least 50 percent growth in 2012. Forty percent experienced triple digit revenue growth. In all, more than 50 companies have graduated the TECH-X program thus far.
