Boomtown Accelerators unveiled its 11th cohort of startups to graduate from its highly selective accelerator program in front of a sold-out audience at the Boulder Theatre on Thursday night. Over the past four years, Boomtown has graduated 100 startups and 250 founders from its program.

At an earlier investor preview, each founder had the opportunity to pitch his/her company to investors and strategic partners, following 12 weeks of intense business guidance and mentorship. Boomtown’s latest Demo Day featured 16 startup founders who shared their innovative solutions to problems in industries ranging from farming to healthcare to transportation.

“At Boomtown, we intentionally seek startups that are early-stage so we can help influence the growth of their businesses through our custom curriculum and mentor community,” said Toby Krout, co-founder and executive director of Boomtown. “This particular class has made an incredible amount of progress over the past three months and is already demonstrating significant traction.”
