BOOM GOES THESE STARTUPS: Utah’s technology accelerator, BoomStartup, is wrapping up its eighth program—and the first cohort dedicated specifically to education companies. The following eight companies will pitch their wares during a Demo Day event on November 5 in Salt Lake City, a growing edtech hub that also houses high-profile companies including Instructure and Pluralsight. (Admissions for the event is free; register here.)

BoomStartup provides a 12-week program and offers startups up to $20,000 in seed funding, mentorship, as well as IT, legal and financial services. Since its beginning in 2010, the accelerator has graduated 100 companies (across all sectors) that have raised a combined $25 million in follow-on funding.

The eight graduates in this edtech cohort include:

  • 7 Generation Games: Engaging games that help students learn math

  • CrowdSchool: Project-based learning made easy
  • Emotuit: Understanding how you learn
