About Us


Business Connect the app is the digital update to Lumin Publishing's Award Winning print publication, Business Connect Magazine.  Business Connect was a regional business publication specifically aimed at the startup, high tech, and entrepreneur segments of Utah’s business community. In addition to providing cutting-edge content as a resource for business leaders, Business Connect was also more exciting and inviting to read than other competing publications. Because of its unparalleled 6-color design, nicer paper, and in-house photographers, Business Connect won three national Maggie Awards, including the coveted Best Overall Design among all trade publications in its first year, and two Maggie’s in the best business publication category—more Maggie Awards than all other Utah business publications combined.


The new app builds on this rich tradition.  Still edgy and focused on the strong entrepreneurial spirit of Utah's business community, our digital format facilitates a richer media experience for the same high quality content.  Add to that the freedom and flexibility of having every issue constantly at your fingertips in the iPhone or iPad app and you have a business publication that fits the lifestyle of our demographic better than anything else on the market.
