  • Blyncsy

    With headquarters in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, Blyncsy has surrounded itself with the subject their innovations aim to improve. The goal at Blyncsy is to better understand habits and trends of various types of traffic in many different places. By collecting big data and developing location analytics technology, they are making it easier for cities to operate more efficiently by informing them with up-to-date traffic flows. Founder and CEO, Mark Pittman, came upon the idea for Blyncsy in 2014 when he got stuck at an unchanging traffic light. In that moment, he realized the need for a more efficient system of tracking and analyzing traffic flows.

  • nView Medical

    Founded in December 2012, nView medical is bringing the next generation of image guidance technology to market. The company is based out of Salt Lake City, Utah, and is currently located in the University of Utah’s Research Park. The nView team is made up of experienced members of the medical imaging industry with more than 50 years of expertise collectively. Their imaging device, called insta3D, is improving the accuracy and efficiency of surgeries and subsequently minimizing risk.

  • Inertial Sense

    Inertial Sense is located in Salem, Utah and manufactures the smallest and lightest GPS aided micro inertial navigation system module on the market. These tiny devices, with a dime-sized footprint, track a number of measurements, such as angular rate, linear acceleration, barometric altitude and global position, to calculate velocity, altitude and position in dynamic environments. In addition to drones, these modules are used for a variety of different applications. For example, they can be used in fitness monitors to help athletes better analyze their performance by measuring their exact orientation, velocity, and position in time. Car navigation systems can also utilize micro sensor, and navigation modules to track if a driver is speeding, swerving or going through unusual periods of acceleration or deceleration.

  • Applied Biosensors

    Applied Biosensors produces multi-analyte, cost-effective single-use biosensors and corresponding analytics software. These sensors are primarily made for the biopharma manufacturing industry and are used to monitor levels of different biomarkers, which help control pharmaceutical production. Applied Biosensors was founded as a spin-out from the University of Utah when Prashant Tathireddy wanted to commercialize decades of research on polymer based multi-analyte biosensors.

  • Nanosynth

    Nanosynth is a startup company with a novel approach for the detection of Tuberculosis. Their technology consists of a method for sensing and detecting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from exhaled breath and offers a method for early diagnosis of several pulmonary diseases, including TB. Nanosynth is technology licensed from the lab of a USTAR supported researcher at the University of Utah. The project also received a university grant from USTAR to assist with their field trials.

  • Metashield

    Metashield received a Technology Acceleration Program (TAP) Grant from USTAR. TAP is a USTAR competitive grant program that supports private sector technology development for Utah-based companies. While designed for start-ups and early stage companies, mature companies can apply to TAP for development of a new technology or product. Proposed work can include, but is not limited to, research and development, proof of concept, product validation, and product development. TAP awardees also receive non-material support, such as referral to USTAR’s partner networks, to assist in achieving technical and business milestones with the goal of commercial success.

  • Veristride

    Veristride, a spin-out from the University of Utah, was a tenant of the USTAR BioInnovations Gateway (BiG). BiG is a life science incubator for emerging biotech and medical device companies, a high-tech training facility for the next generation of bio-innovators, and a contract research resource for Utah’s life science industry. USTAR operates BiG in collaboration with the Granite School District. Veristride has also worked with USTAR’s SBIR-STTR Assistance Center (SSAC). Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) funds are non-dilutive federal grants. The SBIR and STTR programs are the largest source of seed funding with over $2.5 billion dollars invested annually. USTAR’s SSAC is a statewide resource providing qualified Utah businesses assistance and insights into all the elements of the SBIR-STTR process.

  • ENVE

    Based in Ogden, UT, ENVE Composites designs and manufactures the best bicycle wheels in the world. ENVE Composites’ patented process of molding in spoke holes is just one example of their many proprietary technologies. Because carbon fiber gets its strength from continuous, unbroken fibers, ENVE routes the fibers around the hole which increases the strength of each spoke hole. This technique pays large dividends in the final product by allowing for a lighter spoke face in the rim without compromising strength. Because of this process, ENVE’s spoke holes are capable of resisting higher spoke tensions which greatly reduces the risk of spoke pull-through during wheel-build and on the road. ENVE won a TCG grant that prevented 10 jobs being moved overseas.
