Each company received up to $15,000 in seed capital, an additional $15,000 in in-kind services, free office space and resources, and an education in the various steps of launching a technology company. Notable investor-mentors gave of their financial resources and time as mentors to the entrepreneurs.

BoomStartup’s 2011 participants are: ChampionVillage, CircleFive, Explorer.io, FaceTags, ForeUp, Jumbas, OER Glue, PromoKube, Proz and VuTherapy. More information about them is available at http://www.BoomStartup.com.

The 2011 Investor-mentors include Kimball Wirig of Dentrix; Craig Bott of Grow Utah Ventures, MarketStar, and E&Y; Craig Earnshaw of LifeLink Corporation; BoomStartup founders John Richards & Robb Kunz ; and Andy White of SchoolCenter. An additional 50 top mentors in the region also affiliated with BoomStartup in 2011. These, along with many other successful entrepreneurs, will be at the Demo Day and are available for interviews upon request.

This is BoomStartup’s second-annual Demo Day. More than a hundred guests attended last year’s event. Six of the graduating companies received investments as a result.
