Who is driving Utah’s Future?
The Community Foundation of Utah’s 2011 “Enlightened Fifty”

October 22, 2011 -- The Community Foundation of Utah announced today the 2011 class of the “Enlightened Fifty” or E-5-0.  This program recognizes individuals who are a driving force in improving Utah’s future.

Modeled on V-Spring Capital’s V-100, the Foundation received over 200 nominees, who then each selected five individuals, creating the top 50 ‘enlightened entrepreneurs’ or the E-5-O.  The Community Foundation of Utah conducts this process annually, building a network of innovative Utahns committed to the common good.

This year’s E-5-0 includes business and religious leaders, entrepreneurs, academics, community volunteers, journalists, leaders of nonprofits, and elected officials who:

·       pioneer innovative and sustainable approaches to the critical issues facing Utah;
·       demonstrate a commitment to community engagement;
·       make a profound mark on Utah’s quality of life; and
·       value collaboration, entrepreneurship and creativity.

“The Community Foundation of Utah is a forum for people from all walks of life and passions to gain new networks, and drive innovation – together. We are delighted to bring together these extraordinary people who, each in their own way, are committed to the future of our state.” said Greg Warnock, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Community Foundation and Managing Director of the private equity firm Mercato Partners.
