BoomStartup's EdTech 2016 accelerator program is purpose built for education technology startups.

Technology driven innovations are changing the face of education–making it more engaging, more personal, more relevant, and enabling learning to happen anywhere. Our companies will help drive and accelerate this disruption and transformation. Ideal candidates for this program will have innovative ideas that help to lead this shift, and have the potential to make a large impact in the education community.


Application deadline: March 1, 2016Program dates: March 28-June 30, 2016

We surround our startup companies with BoomStartup’s extensive mentor network of investors, serial entrepreneurs, subject matter experts, and EdTech advisors, which include power hitters from big names in education, such as Pearson, HMH, Instructure, Mastery Connect, and Western Governors University. At the end of the program, startups pitch to an extensive pool of venture capitalists and angel investors to raise capital. BoomStartup has helped its companies raise over $25 million in seed capital.


Up to eight select EdTech startups will be chosen for this 3-month intensive program, 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. Startup companies receive $20k seed investment, office space, and over $100k of services, such as hosting, marketing, legal, and financial services. 


The EdTech program will be held in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, although remote participation is possible for parts of the program. Salt Lake City has a thriving startup scene–in fact, it was named number 11 in “The 25 Best U.S. Cities for Tech Startups,” published by Entrepreneur magazine. Utah is home to a healthy ecosystem of successful EdTech companies, including Pluralsight, Instructure, Mastery Connect, True North Logic, School Improvement Network, Kimono, and Degreed.


Apply early and don't miss this unique opportunity. Applications will close on March 1.
