University Startup Incubator

foundryLaunched in the summer of 2010 by University of Utah students, the Foundry @ Lassonde remains one of the most innovative university startup accelerators in the country.

Former program participants handle Foundry day-to-day operations and administration. Successful applicants are selected to participate in an exclusive small-group experience where participants interact in close collaboration with their peers and volunteer coaches to bring their entrepreneurial idea into reality. The experience is intense and life-changing. The list of successful startups emerging from the Foundry continues to grow, participants build valuable skills that make them a hiring target for growing companies, and the friendships that are forged last far beyond the semester.

The program is open to any graduate or undergraduate student at the University of Utah.
