The Skinny


DEADLINE TO APPLY: July 14, 2018

PROGRAM DATES: August 27 – November 15, 2018

The Programs

Boomtown’s Boulder Tech Accelerator opened in 2013 and just graduated its 10th cohort of startups. This program works with ideas and technologies across a range of industries: alumni include companies in real estate, retail, Internet of Things (IoT), energy, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence.

For startups ready to take a deeper dive, Boomtown’s flagship accelerator shares its cohort with three vertical-specific accelerator programs – Hardware & Connectivity, Health Tech, and Real Estate Tech.

The Boomtown Hardware & Connectivity Accelerator is custom-made for early-stage hardware and software startups creating products and services for the connected world. Founders can test out ideas in the Comcast/NBCUniversal-backed Connectivity Lab, a sandbox for imagining, developing, testing, and launching hardware and software. Support from UpRamp — an entrepreneurship initiative backed by the $500B cable consortium, CableLabs — includes access to product guidance, business-building experience, designers, engineers, manufacturers, industry experts, customers, and mentors from leading cable and broadband operators nationwide.

Startups building products and services that improve healthcare services and patient outcomes will want to check out Boomtown’s Patient Safety Health Tech Accelerator. Sponsored by COPIC, this program looks for companies with business ideas in patient​ ​safety, healthcare efficiency, and risk management. Founders will learn the ropes of building a business in the healthcare industry — working through topics like regulatory strategy, value-based care, intellectual property, HIPAA compliance, and business development.

The intersection of real estate with technology is creating new opportunities in a booming investment space. The new Boomtown Real Estate Tech Accelerator seeks companies that improve the way people buy, sell, and rent homes. Think: consumer-facing tech that makes the home-buying process more transparent, delivers a better experience for both the buyer and seller, or streamlines adjacent services like property management.

The Why

Why apply to Boomtown?

For starters, we put founders first. We’re certain that given the best possible support, resources, and attention (not to mention some ice cream, hikes, and tough love) our founders will build the best possible companies.

We practice what we preach. Boomtown customizes every program to meet each company’s needs — no cookie-cutter programs here. And just as you will constantly integrate feedback to iterate and improve your company, we do the same with our programs.

We produce results. Since 2013, Boomtown has invested in 98 companies: 79% are still operating, and 89% of these are generating revenue.

Boomtown reviews applications on a rolling basis until the deadline, so the earlier you apply, the better.
