BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On Thursday, May 28th, 4:00pm MT, Boomtown Accelerators will host its 13th Demo Day as a first-ever online experience featuring a 12 company cohort hosted by Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran.
This first of its kind virtual Demo Day experience will offer investors, founders, and the public an entertaining show featuring founder pitches, mentor feedback, and some empowering insights from Barbara Corcoran.
For three weeks, founders gathered in downtown Boulder and then transitioned to a remote program, dispersing to six home countries. Boomtown quickly pivoted its curriculum to a virtual experience in early March through the remaining nine weeks of the program. Boomtown broadened the program's benefits by incorporating virtual whiteboards, video recordings, virtual networking sessions, and expansion of collaboration tools. The founders gained real-world leadership experience and concrete skills for how to build a business in a crisis.
“Entrepreneurs today must know how to lead in a crisis,” said Boomtown CEO, Toby Krout. “Innovative thinking must empower humanity and our startups have risen to the challenge. The experience they gained over these past few months included powerful, valuable lessons that will serve them for the rest of their careers.”
Boomtown’s current cohort includes startups developing innovative solutions in health tech and wearables including solutions for COVID-19 compliance, streaming technology, facial recognition technology to retrieve medical records, and more. This cohort is 50% minority owned with founders from India, Chile, Portugal, Ukraine, Mexico, Canada and the U.S. Register here for Boomtown’s virtual Demo Day, Thursday, May 28, 4 p.m. MT.
