GovTech Overview

About this program

GovTech is an accelerator operated by Boom Startup and administered by Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED). BoomStartup has been engaged by GOED to instill lean-startup principles and shepherd early-stage companies through the hurdles of starting a business and guide founders to move their technologies to commercialization and profitability. The GovTech Winter 2017 program runs from January 26th – April 18th. Visit the GOED website for more information. In 2017, the grant funding pool is $2 million and typical award size is $100,000 per company.

In 2015, BoomStartup was awarded a 5-year contract by GOED through a competitive bid process to provide accelerator services to ensure the best use of money for companies looking to develop their business in the State of Utah. This was the genesis of our GovTech Accelerator which serves the entire State of Utah. 19 companies participated in the GovTech Spring 2015 accelerator. 24 companies were selected for the GovTech Spring 2016 program.
