Become a Startup Scout
Boomtown Accelerators

Venture into the world of VC startup scouting and unleash your full potential. This role offers you a unique opportunity to network with industry trailblazers and contribute to driving innovation in the startup ecosystem.


Boomtown Accelerators is a notable player in the startup and venture capital ecosystem. This Colorado-based business accelerator aims at fostering the growth of startups by offering them resources, mentorship, and financial support during their early stages. Startups that take part in Boomtown's 12-week program often see significant development, with many going on to secure further funding and achieve commercial success.

One of Boomtown Accelerators' notable success stories is Komodo OpenLab, makers of the Tecla product, a series of devices designed to enable people with any sort of mobility impairment to interact with technology. After being part of Boomtown's 2015 cohort, Komodo OpenLab went on to secure further funding and has since made a significant impact in the assistive technology field.

Boomtown Accelerators features a diverse team of mentors and investors, including executives and former founders who bring to the table wealth of expertise and contacts. Among them is Jose Vieitez, a former Director at Boomtown. He made significant contributions to the accelerator program, leveraging his background in psychology and human-computer interaction to help startups build products that meet users' needs.

In addition to their accelerator program, Boomtown has initiated several specialized tracks in fields such as HealthTech and Internet of Things (IoT), allowing startups in these sectors to gain specialized insights and connections. The 'Connectivity and Hardware’ tracks, for example, is supported by partners like UpRamp and CableLabs, helping startups working on products related to connectivity and consumer hardware.

What stands out about Boomtown Accelerators is their commitment to supporting startups and contributing to the overall health and diversity of the startup ecosystem. They have a strong emphasis on inclusion, and continuously strive to support founders from a variety of backgrounds, demographics and industries.
