Beth Young-Jones

Chair, 2019 Global Technology Summit and Director of Operations

Beth was introduced to the Jackson Hole Technology Partnership at the 2016 Summit. The possibility to turn concept into action is what spurred Beth into a formal relationship with JHTP. Beth’s focus is on creating platforms to do great work alongside creative people while solving a meaningful problem. She’s committed to driving global outcomes through the Wyoming Healthcare Initiative, a worthy project of JHTP because she believes no person should be at risk for poor health outcomes based on where they live.

MaTt Mead

Former Governor of Wyoming & Founding Member

“Where you find one blade of grass, leave two.”

“It is my hope that the Summit will continue to bring people from all over the world to create, innovate and utilize their technology in the state of Wyoming and beyond.”

Determined to see Wyoming’s economy thrive by solving problems inherent to rural peoples, Matt turned to John Temte and Jack Selby.  They founded the Jackson Hole Technology Partnership -- a global nonprofit tasked to find cutting edge technologies relevant to rural people and accelerate their accessibility globally – and began recruiting dedicated volunteers and welcoming generous donors.

Over the last six years, Matt, the Jackson Hole Technology Partnership and Wyoming legislators carefully laid the foundation for a prosperous high tech economy to take root in Wyoming and give young graduates, entrepreneurs and startups a new chance to build solid careers, exciting lives and happy families in Wyoming.

That foundation is quietly attracting substantial high-tech companies and startups to Wyoming, as never before.
