NewPattern Utah is a movement that seeks to promote and celebrate founders from various backgrounds in order to change the narrative that diverse founders can and do create successful companies. This movement also aims to advance the fact that companies that seek to serve the needs of a greater variety of people are tremendous opportunities for economic growth and investment.

The Utah Black Chamber of Commerce was created to build pathways for black Utahns and diverse implants alike to find ways to succeed in Utah. From the beginning, our vision has been to be the key resource center and knowledge share for corporate stakeholders both in Utah, and the Mountain West Region, and to actively promote the personal and professional growth of black Utahns. We want everyone to have the necessary tools, network and family system to experience a more fulfilling life within our communities.
