Develop Ogden is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in late 2019 and made up of a group of software companies headquartered north of Salt Lake.
Most Utahns are aware of the thriving software scene in Salt Lake and Utah counties. When asked about north of Salt Lake, however, few people are aware of all the good things happening
Develop Ogden was created to help spread the word of the thriving software scene in the greater Ogden area. Develop Ogden was founded and is led by the leaders of its member companies, leaders who have a passion for entrepreneurship, software, people, and the greater Ogden area. They love where they live, work, and play and want others to experience the same.
The notion that “together, we can achieve more” is the driving idea behind the collaboration that created Develop Ogden.
The first word, “Develop” has two meanings: 1) “develop” as in to gorw and 2) “develop” as in software development, the industry of our member companies.
The second word, “Ogden,” because Ogden is the largest city in and center of our member area. That said, our member area is made up of many other wonderful cities and towns.
To help develop our home, the greater Ogden area (Box Elder, Cache, Davis, Morgan, Rich, and Weber Counties), into a place where we can live, work, and play. We will accomplish our mission by establishing and fostering an environment where software companies can start and thrive, resulting in well-paying, benefit-rich career opportunities. We will combine community resources and talents, focus on our mission, create impactful events, provide mentoring opportunities, serve our community, and tell our story. Our efforts will encourage community leaders and members to support our mission and persuade citizens to remain in and entice talented people to move to the greater Ogden area.
