Wasatch Venture Fund, based in Salt Lake City, said Friday it has changed its name to Epic Ventures.

The company said the new name "reflects the firm's growth from a primarily local, Utah-centric firm when it was founded by Zions Bank in 1994 to a growing regional fund with an expanding investment footprint."

It has invested in more than 90 companies since its inception.

It will continue to have offices in Utah, New Mexico and Idaho. Zions Bank, which invested in each of the previous Wasatch funds, will retain its close working relationship with Epic Ventures.
