CC Alumni Receive Big Boost from Boomtown Startup Accelerator

Two Colorado College alumni and former student leaders, Ben Quam ’12 and Alex Kronman ’12, were recently selected to participate in a 12-week program from Boomtown, a startup accelerator in Boulder, for their startup company, College Press Club. Roughly 170 companies applied to participate in the inaugural program this year, with only six teams being selected. Each team that was selected received $20,000 in seed money, as well as additional services and perks like the opportunity to get advice and tips from Boomtown’s network of mentors.

College Press Club, according to their website, “makes it dramatically easier to buy and manage ads in college newspapers” by connecting advertisers and student-operated publications.  Congratulations to Alex and Ben!
