MWCN Top Utah 100

Yesterday, I attended the Mountain West Capital Network luncheon at the Grand America. They announced the Top 100 Utah companies based upon revenue and growth. It was exciting to see that the LoveSac Corporation led the group as the #1 company in Utah.

Shawn Nelson, their founder and CEO, is one of our Junto mentors (he also won Richard Branson's Rebel Billionaire competition last year). Shawn is a terrific example of a passionate businessman. It is apparent that he loves what he does and much of their success is a result of that passion.

One of the main reasons that I chose to join FundingUniverse.com is because I am passionate about helping entrepreneurs get the funding that they need. While I know that we aren't going to help everyone that posts a business plan on our site, if we are contributing to the success of a few, it will be worth it.

Anyway...Congrats Shawn!
