Jmayf Startup List


I’ve maintained lists of startups casually over the past few years. Here is a list of Utah companies on the rise. I’m sure I’ve missed some great ones so contact me (johnmayf at gmail dot com) if you know of any I should add or meet. Btw- I’ve intentionally omitted nearly all pre Series A companies that I track. I’ll publish a curated seed list at some point.
