Salt Lake City—Startups today announced the launch of StartStudio , an earlystage startup studio that works with founders across the country to help develop new products and launch scalable technology companies.
Companies accepted into StartStudio receive up to $100K in the form of a convertible note to work closely with an accomplished inhouse team and a wide array of mentors to build a sustainable business worthy of longterm investment and top talent.
“StartStudio is an answer to a question we’ve been asking ourselves for years. What if we could help extraordinarily talented entrepreneurs get off to a better start?” said Clint Betts, founder and CEO of Beehive Startups. “We’ve partnered with distinguished and experienced software developers, designers, earlystage investors, lawyers, accountants, executives, banks, risk managers, and mentors to do everything we possibly can to prevent a costly false start to a promising company.”
StartStudio has a number of wellknown partners, including Kickstart Seed Fund , the most active seed investor in Utah, and Izeni , a Provobased design and software development firm.
Each partner will work closely with participating startups to help guide founders through every aspect of building a scalable company.
“In a relatively short time, Beehive Startups has had a major impact on Utah through events like StartFEST, and by actively telling the amazing story of the rapidly growing startup and tech scene here in the state,” said Gavin Christensen, Managing Partner of Kickstart Seed Fund.
“We’re excited to be a partner with Clint and his team on StartStudio. Both of our organizations care deeply about the longterm growth and success of the startup ecosystem and believe that StartStudio will help entrepreneurs get the validation and product traction necessary to raise seed funding.”
StartStudio is not a threemonth startup accelerator. There will be no Demo Day, applications are always open, and participating startups will not be broken into cohorts. StartStudio only exists to build beautiful products and sustainable companies.
