The local business scene will get together again, have lunch and gloat about some of the most successful young companies in Utah.

On July 8, the Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum will host its 21st annual Top 25 Under 5 Awards luncheon. The awards recognize the fastest growing companies in Utah less than 5 years old. The companies are chosen based on profit, job creation, job quality and growth.

The UVEF uses the Top 25 Under 5 to promote companies that may become region, state and global leaders in their industries. Some of the past award winners include ZAGG, Agel Enterprises, Interbank FX, Seastone, Altiris, Omniture, and Xango.

UVEF promises that this year’s event will feature exciting new companies and David Bradford of Fusion-io will be the emcee. And if last year was any indication, the food will be great, too.

Last year, Lt. Gov. Gary Herbert addressed the crowd and talked about the strength of entrepreneurship in the state and the positive affect it has on the entire economy. SEO.com ranked #17 a year ago, and we are pulling for a higher spot come July.

The event is on Thursday, July 8 at Novell building A. Noon to 1:30. UVEF members get in for free, non-members are $25 (including lunch).
