About This Program

Technology-driven innovations from startup companies are changing the world and continue to push the boundaries of technology in our daily lives. BoomStartup is a seed, early-stage venture accelerator founded on the belief that connecting these companies with the right mentors, investors, and industry experts is the right way to achieve scale and generate explosive growth. Our program is based on lean startup methodologies that apply across various types of early-phase startups giving us the flexibility to work with just about any type of company including tech, software, EdTech, product, and biotech ventures.

 


We’ve shepherded over 170 companies through the rigors of launching a company and helped 72% of them get funded.


Unlike traditional accelerators, BoomStartup operates virtually through an online platform, allowing us to reach more founders and deliver broader resources to their companies. Companies start by applying to the program here. In the initial application, we collect metrics and other information about your business and use this data to generate a score card that provides ratings across seven critical categories, showing you where your company stands today. More importantly, we generate a custom business plan laying out a path to success with detailed steps and defined metrics needed to reach each milestone.

Through our online platform, we provide the resources you need to successfully work through your custom business plan, including educational resources, mentoring from seasoned professionals, investor introductions, pitch development, and a marketplace with pertinent solutions from trusted services providers. Given the virtual nature of the program, founders can work at their own pace to accelerate their business for up-to 52 weeks, which will help them find an optimal business model, create a minimal viable product that is revenue-ready, execute into revenue generation, and make connections to customers and investors.

Below you will find information on a few recent accelerator graduates who have gone on to become pioneers in their industries.

 


As companies mature through our 5-level program, they become eligible to receive capital. Companies that reach the 5th level can receive up-to $120k in seed funding, which is deployed across multiple investments based on achieving mutually agreed performance milestones. In return, BoomStartup receives 6-9% of equity in each company. In addition to capital, companies also receive increased access to valuable in-kind services, including technology, banking, legal and financial services as they reach new milestones.

What our Graduates Have to Say

What Our Graduates Have to Say

These & similar sentiments are regularly heard from our alumni. It’s not about determining your path, it’s about accelerating it and learning years of lessons in a matter of months.


“BoomStartup has been amazing. I liken it to standing out in the cold under a raincloud, not knowing what to do about your company. And somebody walking up with an umbrella and a warm blanket and wrapping it around you and saying “we gotcha and we can figure out how to get you home.” It’s been really incredible. I don’t think we would’ve gotten nearly where we are in the last 12 weeks had it not been for BoomStartup.” – Kati Radizwon, iFlipd CEO


“I actually have an MBA and I feel like being at BoomStartup has been a chapter two of that experience. In business school they don’t teach you how to drive startups forward. BoomStartup has been a perfect extension of business school. It’s like a Bootcamp for entrepreneurship. It’s truly helped accelerate our business.” – Peter Glenn, CrowdSchool CEO




“BoomStartup holds a unique position in the Utah startup ecosystem. Few other organizations bring together the experience from tested business leaders, angel investors and institutional funds the way that BoomStartup does. The leadership offered from their deep bench of mentors and program directors is ready to help any founder and early stage company successfully navigate their way through the challenges of the startup world. – Sam Stoddard, SimpleCitizen CEO


“I loved my experience at BoomStartup. The best thing I’ve gotten out of the program is lots of advice and tons of mentors available to us. It really helped us take everything we would’ve learned in two years and made it applicable to our business in 12-weeks. It’s definitely worth the experience if you put the work in. – Jordan Townsend, Circll CEO
