BoomStartup is an early-stage business accelerator that provides startups with mentoring, office space and $20,000 cash.
The accelerator program is divided into two campuses. The North campus is at the Salt Lake Community College Miller Innovation Center in Salt Lake City, while the South campus is based in Provo’s Camp 4 facility.
BoomStartup’s Camp 4 facility in Provo is like “a little San Francisco,” said Tyler Richards, one of the program managers at the tech accelerator.
