Boomtown was created for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs. Teams get to spend three months developing their startups, surrounded by the resources they need most early on. From validating product to fundraising insights, the Boomtown curriculum continues to evolve with each cohort. The resources and mentorship we provide reflect our learnings and directly support the needs of the individual startup.


Teams selected for each cohort receive $20,000 in seed money and an additional estimated $700,000 in perks. In addition, companies taking part in the program gain invaluable connections to enthusiastic mentors and investors.


Located in the heart of Boulder, the newly renovated Boomtown HQ is a dynamic workspace, hosting the accelerator program “classroom” space, conference rooms, breakout spaces, and the Boomtown Connectivity Lab, which provides a leading-edge toolkit for development.


Boomtown’s world-class mentor network boasts some of the most talented minds in technology, branding, and strategy. We match entrepreneurs with top industry leaders, all of whom are passionate about supporting startups.


A major focus at Boomtown is on developing and adapting a program that is best suited for the startup- therefore, our curriculum is customized to the needs of the individual startup, supporting and educating entrepreneurs where they need it the most.
