Alex Bogusky Steps Away From Boomtown Accelerator to Concentrate on New Projects
Bogusky launched Boomtown with Toby Krout, Jose Vieitez and Stephen Groth in 2014 in Boulder, Colorado as a seed-stage tech accelerator. The company identifies promising startups from around the world. Selected startups are nurtured through a 12-week mentoring program, $20,000 in seed money, $40,000 in services and support and an additional $700,000 in perks.
“Boomtown is entering an exciting new phase and I’ll always be proud to have played a small part in getting it started,” Bogusky said.
Bogusky is leaving Boomtown at a transition point for the company—as it prepares to close its second fund. Instead, the creative leader will focus on other ventures, including Brandzooka, a self-service video marketing tool for businesses that can't afford a multimillion-dollar ad buy, and his Angel portfolio includes the advertising agencies Made and Humanaut, and the launch of a new venture in January.
