I first had a hint that Boomi co-founder and Philly Startup Leaders President Rick Nucci was preparing to launch a new startup when I saw this tweet by him a couple of weeks ago, communicating about his LaunchRock site, usually a sign that something is up:

Indeed he is, and Walnut Street Labs reports it is called Guru, has already been funded and has been hiring, and plans a formal product announcement on June 16. Not much information so far, except that "Guru lets you capture, verify, and share your facts and answers, right from the apps you use every day." You can see its LinkedIn site here.

Nucci will be at Walnut Street Labs in West Chester on Tuesday (May 6) from 9 to 10am. His topic will be "My Ten Favorite Startup Mistakes."
