When you attend TechX Labs, you will be taught by very experienced and popular instructors.
For almost three decades I’ve helped thousands of business owners and founders secure the content, capital, and connections they need to accelerate profitability.
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 sales an average of 2.46X with combined revenues exceeding $145 million. Participants report more than $120 million in liquidity events of exits and follow-on capital infusions, with one company selling for 30X revenues.
Through the years, I’ve led several national commercial lending institutions, including franchise financing divisions. In 1996 I founded Commerce Capital Corporation; a commercial 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.
“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
I believe in the power of the entrepreneur to envision and innovate solutions, create opportunity, and spur growth. Yet most businesses struggle to grow and many fail.
My goal is to help them achieve breakthrough performance and realize their full potential for success. High performance generates accelerated growth; growth creates greater access to capital and markets.
The experience I bring spans the spectrum from startups to multinationals, and includes working with people and organizations who represent the highest levels of accomplishment in business, sports and education. I’ve also addressed thousands of entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners internationally at entrepreneur forums, business conferences, seminars, and as a guest lecturer at universities.
