The newly opened Impact Hub served as the unveiling spot for Boom Startup’s latest cohort. Boom Startup is a startup accelerator providing mentorship, advising and a small amount of funding during their three month program.
MyFlightTrain provides software for the aviation training industry. Parakeet creates home automation for vacation rentals including temperature sensors, flood sensors and remote controlled locks. For the long term care industry, Trackcarenow, has created labor management software to help reduce costs.
Basedin from Boise is representing the 208 with their local business recommendation engine that draws online reputation data for its scoring algorithm. Currently in four cities, this startup has raised $120,000 in funding. PatternJam allows quilters to simulate completed patterns using different styles of fabric.
On the medical technology side, T3S Technologies produces recombinant proteins at
a significantly reduced price. This will reduce treatment costs for certain diseases that now range in the $1,000s per dose.
Wrapping up this cohort is Prismxkb. They have a mobile app that collects data in real time that converts the data creating a score for performance evaluations. The use of their application is quite varied with organizations like the U.S. Army to plumbing companies currently in their client base. The biggest benefit of their app is the ability to capture data in real time instead of waiting for data to be entered at a future date. CEO Preston McCormick explained some Silicon Valley companies are having difficulty hiring top talent. With their app, data for all job candidates would be scored and an offer could be extended in real-time so that candidate wouldn’t have a chance to go somewhere else.
Rob Gallup of Boom Startup also pointed out they are adding an education technology program this summer that is currently recruiting for its first cohort.
This spring cohort will wrap up in 90 days with a “demo day” event for potential investors and clients.
