Throughout the program, a network of mentors and investors, including former founders, executives, and business experts from the EdTech field, support the startups.
BoomStartup is a lean startup accelerator and mentorship-driven seed-stage investment program for technology-based startups, and a founding member of the Global Accelerator Network (GAN). Last year, BoomStartup was named the #12 accelerator in the US by TechCrunch, and has helped raise over $25 million in capital for its companies.
