BoomStartup, an incubator based in Salt Lake City, Utah, just announced the startups participating in its third annual session.
The program runs from May to August. Participating companies get $20,000 in seed capital and $80,000 worth of infrastructure, office space, and services from companies like Microsoft, PayPal, and Rackspace. Co-managing partner Robb Kunz places a big emphasis on mentorship — each startup is assigned a lead mentor as their main point of contact, and other mentors include SimpleGeo co-founder Matt Galligan and Omniture co-founder John Pestana.
And if you’re thinking, “Utah? What? Did someone say incubator bubble?” well, at least a few important tech products have come out of Utah, including WordPerfect and Omniture. More recently, there was Space Monkey, the Dropbox competitor that won best new startup at this year’s Launch conference. And BoomStratup was actually on the Kauffman Foundation’s list of top 15 incubators last year. (Yes, that’s a real list that someone made.)
Anyway, here’s a (lightly edited) list of the companies, provided by BoomStartup:
