BlueVine Capital Expands in Salt Lake City, Utah’s Silicon Slopes Region
“Our fintech sector continues to grow, and we’re pleased BlueVine has chosen to expand in the state,” said Val Hale, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “This project to build a new operations center for BlueVine will create many high-paying jobs that will be economically impactful for Utah.”
“We’re very excited to join the thriving fintech community in Utah’s Silicon Slopes and look forward to welcoming local customer support and account management talent to our new operations center,” said Eyal Lifshitz, CEO and co-founder of BlueVine. “Our Utah operations center will help support and scale our vision for BlueVine business banking and help take our customer service to the next level.”
BlueVine may earn up to 25% of the new state taxes it will pay over the nine-year life of the agreement in the form of a Utah Legislature-authorized Economic Development Tax Increment Finance (EDTIF) tax rebate. The GOED Board has approved a post-performance tax rebate not to exceed $4,087,777. Each year that BlueVine meets the criteria in its contract with the state, it will earn a portion of the total tax rebate.
“In April 2018, we met with BlueVine during a Bay Area global strategy and outreach campaign focused on fast-growing fintech companies,” said Theresa A. Foxley, president & CEO of EDCUtah. “Welcoming BlueVine to Utah validates the strength of our fintech cluster and the effectiveness of our GS&O initiative.”
