Hardware & Connectivity  Accelerator_

Not All Hardware Accelerators Are Equal. This one goes to 11.

in partnership with


In partnership with CableLabs and UpRamp — an entrepreneurship initiative backed by the $500B cable consortium — Boomtown brings you the first connectivity and hardware accelerator for early-stage startups working in the connectivity software and devices space.


The Hardware & Connectivity Tech Accelerator is sponsored by

Located in our Boulder HQ, the Connectivity+Hardware Tech Accelerator taps into Boomtown’s existing Connectivity Lab (sponsored by Comcast Labs) to give hardware startups world-class resources, product input, and business experience. Founders get access to connected hardware device manufacturers, industry experts, customers, and mentors from leading cable and broadband operators nationwide.



Happiest City
in America.

Nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountains and just up the road from the mile-high city of Denver, Boulder doesn’t compromise brains for beauty or business for brawn. From Google and Twitter to CP+B and Celestial Seasonings, Boulder is home to some of the world’s most recognizable brands — plus a world-class university, three national research labs, and a ton of happy pups.


There’s no better place than Boulder to kick off your connectivity and hardware accelerator.


Bloomberg ranks Boulder #1 in “brain power,” with its insane amounts of science and tech degree-holders, employment opportunities, and new-business generation. In fact Boulder tops the list for density of Inc. 5000 high-growth companies (it probably doesn’t hurt that Colorado is one of the top-five states for venture capital investment) and Forbes ranked it the #1 best city for starting a business. But we like to play, too: 20+ ski resorts and 300+ miles of trails at our doorstep keep us healthy and fit. Our brew pub game is strong and Eater calls the culinary scene “mighty.” Maybe all this is why National Geographic Gallup Special Index declared Boulder the “happiest city in America”?
