Boulder Tech Accelerator

Your great idea, built into a great business.

intro

The Boulder Tech Accelerator is Boomtown’s mothership.

Since 2013 we’ve been investing in great people so that they can build great companies. We customize each of our tech accelerator programs with the curriculum, mentors, and resources to meet founders’ needs. Located in the heart of Boulder, the Boomtown HQ features office and collaboration space as well as the Boomtown Connectivity Lab, a development workshop for hardware and software innovation.

A tech accelerator +

the Happiest city in America.
Boom.

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 Microsoft, Boulder is home to some of the world’s most recognizable technology brands — plus a world-class university, three national research labs, and a ton of happy pups.

What gives us the edge over a big city program, like an NYC accelerator? Well, the views are better. But more than that, Boulder is a leader in innovation and out-of-the-box thinking. There’s a reason so many entrepreneurs choose a Boulder startup accelerator – because if you’re trying to break the mold, go to a city populated by people who are comfortable being uncomfortable. In our accelerator programs, you’ll push yourself harder, learn faster and achieve more than you dreamed possible.

intro-more

Forbes ranked Boulder the #1 best city for starting a business, and Colorado is one of the top-five states for venture capital investment. There are insane amounts of science and tech degree-holders, and employment opportunities here, with the bustling Denver tech hub right down the road. We love to play on our trails and slopes, our brew pub game is strong, and Eater calls our culinary scene “mighty.” Oh: and we’re nice people, too.

Here’s the thing about Boulderites, though. Even the most comically fit, creative, and successful among them tend not to be assholes.
