Focusing on the complete development of the entrepreneur.
Twice a year, 10 startups are invited to participate in a 12-week world-class accelerator program. The program is powered by Boomtown Accelerators, a Boulder, Colorado-based accelerator that has invested in more than 100 startups, of which 86% are in operation, 60% are generating revenue and 75% have raised funding.
Boomtown’s unique model constantly evolves based on feedback from participating founders and mentors. The accelerator program is created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs to provide a complete business and management curriculum. The goal of the accelerator is not simply to provide the shortest distance between an idea and funding, but instead to support entrepreneurs in building great companies.
Teams selected for each cohort receive $20,000 in seed capital and an additional estimated $1.7 million in perks. In addition, companies taking part in the program gain valuable connections to enthusiastic mentors and investors.
The FARM’s world-class mentor network boasts some of the most talented minds in technology, business, branding and strategy. We match entrepreneurs with top industry leaders, all of whom are passionate about supporting startups.
A major focus of The FARM is developing and adapting a program that is best suited for the startup- therefore, our curriculum is customized to the needs of the individual startup, supporting and educating entrepreneurs where they need it the most.
