CEO of Precision Concrete Cutting Aaron Ollivier spearheaded his company’s venture into franchising, and has since seen over 40 franchises open across the US and Canada. Remaining committed to helping other promising young businesses, Aaron Ollivier founded the venture capital group Utah Angels 2 in 2013.
Utah Angels 2, or UA2, is named after the original venture capital group the Utah Angels, which supported numerous rising businesses in Utah by investing capital and sharing management and business expertise. The original group recently disbanded, only to be revived under new leadership as UA2, a consortium of entrepreneurs and high-tech executives seeking to invest their resources – both money and time – in new Utah businesses.
Some of UA2’s recent projects include Alpenglow Expeditions, which provides guides for mountaineering, climbing, trekking, and skiing expeditions worldwide, and Ecoscraps, which repurposes food waste into beneficial agricultural products.
Entrepreneurs who are interested in benefiting from UA2’s funding and expertise start the process by completing a simple online questionnaire that provides a broad overview of their business. They are also invited to reach out to UA2 online by visiting the company’s website, ua2.co.
