We are living in the Age of Connectivity, in which devices are constantly sharing data and communicating with each other. What was once considered science fiction is quickly becoming reality– The distance between the physical world and the digital world is shrinking to nothing. 

The Lab is a place where entrepreneurs can see what is already out there, plug in, and get the resources they need to build responsible new products. We believe that entrepreneurs are at the forefront of making the world a better place, and that is exactly why we built this awesome connectivity playground.

How much does it cost?

The Lab is free for all entrepreneurs that would benefit from use of the space. If you are working on an IoT hardware product, this lab was built for you!

We have an application in place to vet your company and make sure that we are able to support you and your idea, as well as ensure the safety of the lab and other lab users.

What equipment is available?

Currently in the Lab, users have access to:

  • Lulzbot TAZ 5 3D printer
  • Circuit Board Assembly Microscope
  • Oscilloscopes
  • Digital Power Supplies
  • Soldering Irons
  • SolidWorks
  • Adobe Design Suite

… and more! The Lab exists to serve the entrepreneur, so we are constantly taking requests from the teams using the workspace for new equipment that would benefit them and others.

Do I have to be a part of the accelerator to use the lab?

Nope! Any early-stage startup operating in the IoT industry is eligible to use the lab.

How does it work?

The Lab is open 9-5, Monday through Friday. Teams using the Lab are welcome to come and go as they choose over a four-month period, keeping monthly check-ins with the Boomtown team. At the end of that period, teams are welcome to apply for an extension.

I'm not a startup, but I would like to learn more.

The Lab is always looking for leaders in the space who are interested in supporting the startup community. Whether you are a mentor, sponsor, or vendor, reach out to and let us know how you’d like to be involved.

"The lab provides all the resources a fast-moving, connected hardware startup could need. From great debugging tools, 3D printers and software, to fast-paced startup culture and great people."
