Snapchat Sets Up Secret Research Lab In Utah
Venice, California-based Snap, Inc., the parent firm of Snapchat, has reportedly set up a new, secret location in Lehi, Utah, according to a report this week. The report says that the new lab is being headed up by former Scan.me co-founder Kirk Ouimet, who founded Scan.me out of Brigham Young University, and sold that to Snap for the basis of its Scancodes product. Lehi is a major center of technology talent in Utah's Silicon Slopes, and is home to scores of other technology companies. Lehi's tech companies include Adobe, Ancestry.com, DigiCert, MyHeritage, SolutionReach, SalesRabbit, and many others; the region prefers to call itself the "Silicon Slopes".
