This Fall, 10 top startups will participate in the 4th class of the intense 12-week Boomtown accelerator session in Boulder, CO.
Boomtown offers startups the best of what makes Boulder one of the best startup cities in the world, with the highest density of startups per capita in the US. You’ll be mentored by seasoned investors, engineers, designers, and marketers (and did we mention that the New York Times called Boulder the New Madison Ave?) all focused on taking your startup to the next level.
ResourcesWe invest $20k in each company, and provide everything from hosting to legal services; you won’t have to worry about getting the resources you need.
Tech Meets MediaWe 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.
Top MentorsWe 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.
