Boomtown welcomes you to Boulder on November 12th, for our Fall 2014 Demo Day event at the Boulder Theater.
Each of the nine startup companies appearing at the event have been hand-picked by our selection committee to receive a $20,000 capital infusion and participate in our intensive 12-week accelerator program. Boomtown advisors and mentors have worked closely with all nine companies, helping them define their business models, refine their technologies and focus their marketing and fundraising activities. Don’t miss the opportunity to see these future stars at their launch event!
All ticket sales from Boomtown Demo Day go to Entrepreneurship Fund of Colorado.
We invest $20k in each company, and provide everything from logo design, to hosting, to legal services; you won’t have to worry about getting the resources you need.
Tech Meets Media
We are the tech accelerator focusing on the intersection of big data, media, and design, run by seasoned designers, engineers, and marketing experts whose goal is to share all of what we know with you.
We match you with top leaders in each of their respective fields. They know what it’s like to be in your shoes in order to help you through your current hurdles.
HOW IT WORKS:
Eight to ten companies are selected from the applicants to be a part of the program. Those companies are selected based on the strength of the team, the strength of the idea, and Boomtown’s ability to provide value with investment, mentoring and connections.
Boomtown was created for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs. Teams get to spend 3 months developing their startups, surrounded by the resources they need most early on (branding and logo design, marketing, code feedback, usability testing). The resources and mentorship we provide are based on what we wished we’d had in past accelerator experiences.
Each startup receives:
- $20k in investment
- Office space in the heart of downtown Boulder
- Design and marketing support from local and national firms
- Mentoring from prominent engineers, entrepreneurs, investors, and thought leaders.
- Over $60k in other benefits
- Demo day at the end of the program bringing in top angels and VCs to see your company
GETTING YOUR STARTUP NOTICED
If you’ve got a technology-powered startup, you need to surround your idea with great engineers and entrepreneurs that have pulled their own companies off the ground. Check. We’ve got that. But if you’ve been at this for even a little while you’ve probably realized that the best idea isn’t going anywhere without baked-in design and marketing.
Boomtown takes full advantage of the unique nexus of technologists and design/marketing specialists that have fueled Boulder’s meteoric rise on the startup scene. Then we apply all that knowledge to help you build a product that people can’t stop using and can’t stop sharing.
We are accepting applications now for Spring 2015. The deadline for applications is in November and the selected companies will be notified by the end of December about interviews.
