Roger is a great source for advice. I consider Roger a trusted advisor, and I highly value him as a friend as well as a mentor. Josh Case - CEO @ Energy Capital Group, LLC
Roger is one of the industry’s best when it comes to launching and accelerating startup’s growth. A few minutes of his time could provide a lifetime of valuable advice. David Przybyla, Marketing Professor at Utah Valley University
Roger is my hero for all the reasons that you also value. He keeps a very low-key profile and has a wicked-bright mind. Roger has launched, advised or invested in literally hundreds of startups. What makes Roger a role model for me is his humility and goodness. He has always extended a helping hand and advice whenever I have reached out to him. Roger is an honored member of the community and represents the values that build solid communities. Rajeev (Raj) Rawat - Author, Speaker, Consultant at Reverse the Chase Project
For almost three decades I've helped thousands of business owners and founders secure the content, capital, and connections they need to accelerate profitably.
I began my career as a credit analyst for one of the largest SBA lenders in the country at the time. However, in recent years, I've been coaching CEOs while growing business accelerators and incubators; more specifically helping companies to accelerate revenue growth and optimize their business models.
This passion for helping others has led to the founding of TechX - Mentored Acceleration, a cutting-edge program designed to help companies scale. So far, the TechX program has helped more than 100 companies increase combined revenues exceed $150+ million. Participants report more than $145 million in liquidity events of exits and follow-on capital infusions, with one company selling for 30X revenues. On average companies have experienced a valuation increased more than 17x. Participants strongly credit the program with helping them succeed. On a scale of 1-to-10, they rate the impact of the TechX program on their success as 8.3+.
Through the years, I've led several national commercial lending institutions, including franchise financing divisions. In 1996 I founded Commerce Capital Corporation; a venture lending company which provided funding for companies all over North America. Locally I've been actively involved in the entrepreneurial ecosystem; serving in a number of organizations and Boards including the Technology Center @ Novell, the Business Development Corporation of Provo, Utah Valley University's Business Resource Center, Provo Labs Incubator, Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum, UtahAngels, Utah Angels 2, Boomstartup, and founding utahTechX.com.

"I have spent the last 35 years working with complexity. Family businesses, high-net-worth families and executives all seem to face similar core challenges. If there is one thing I've learned, it is that you just can't go it alone. Well, you can…but it is so much harder than it needs to be. I work shoulder to shoulder with my clients to create powerful change that almost always shows up in their income statements and balance sheets. More than just financial success, it's really about the bigger things in life that make getting out of bed in the morning pure joy!"
