Local Startup “ZoomBroom” Nets Matching Fund Investment
On behalf of its Matching Fund Program, the Monroe County Business Development Corporation and ProMedica Innovations announced their most recent investment in Monroe County’s own ZoomBroom. The Matching Fund Program has provided $40,000 in financial support to fund the company’s Kickstarter campaign and early onset development efforts. The new company is the brainchild of local entrepreneurs Randy Kuckuck and Kevin Newcomer.
ZoomBroom is a revolutionary new consumer product that makes cleaning off your deck, patio, sidewalks, and steps a breeze. Its slim, lightweight design makes it easy to store in a convenient location in your home or business so it is ready to tackle cleaning challenges. Leaf blowers are great for clearing leaves in the fall, but the ZoomBroom is designed for more common, everyday tasks around the house.
“The Matching Fund Program is pleased to be able to support this new Monroe County company,” stated Tim Lake, President and CEO of the Monroe County Business Development Corporation. “This investment is what the BDC Board of Directors and ProMedica Innovations had in mind when they allocated a combined $500,000 to start the Matching Fund Program back in 2018. We have two local businessmen with a new product that they intend to launch and develop within Monroe County and we are proud to support their enterprise.”
“The Matching Fund program is a great resource for Monroe County entrepreneurs,” said Randy Kuckuck. “The investment that they are making in ZoomBroom shows their confidence in us as we build this new enterprise in Monroe.”
ZoomBroom will be matching the amount provided through the program’s local investment to enhance their efforts. They expect to have this new product available on the Kickstarter platform in April 2021. For updates on the product launch or to help support this innovative new product, visit ZoomBrooms.com.
