Church & State is about collaboration, as well as the inspiration and innovation that come from working together.

Launched in 2014, Church & State is a business platform and resource network for entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses. Housed in a historic 22,000 square foot building in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, we are focused on building a close-knit community of innovators, mentors, policy makers, financiers and funders who share our belief that collaboration is the key to business success, at every stage and every level.
