Each year the US and Canadian governments provide billions of dollars in R&D tax credits and innovation funding to help businesses, but the application process is cumbersome, prone to frustrating audits, and receiving the money can take 12+ months.

Boast is building the future of tax credit recovery with artificial intelligence so companies can get more money, faster for less time and risk.

Boast’s mission is to help innovative companies become successful. While we serve that mission through our product, we’ve also built a non-profit community of 90k+ innovators called Traction to take that mission further, bringing leaders from the fastest growing companies like Google, Shopify, Twilio, GitHub, Cloudflare, and many more to share advice via weekly webinars, regular meetups, and conferences.

We've secured $123M USD in funding and have been featured in TechCrunch, VentureBeat, Fox Business, Forbes, and other publications as a force in the space.

Come join our mission to enable innovators to change the world!
