Foundry at Lassonde Fall 2016 Launch!

Back again and better than ever! University of Utah’s startup accelerator, the Foundry at Lassonde Institute will be operating out of the new Lassonde Studios building beginning fall 2016. The change of venue will help Foundry participants take advantage of everything the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute has to offer in terms of resources, training, mentors and financing for your entrepreneurial idea.

Launched in the summer of 2010 by University of Utah students, the Foundry 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.
