Solutions we connect CEOs with


We curate and co-create solutions based on what CEOs really need. Our first-ever CEO Study (download) – published in partnership with HubSpot – was Boom’s initial deep dive into the challenges that CEOs personally face when it comes to driving business growth. It’s our original research and the seed from which Boom has been growing. The CEO Study research is now ongoing, and we will continue it forever. It roots Boom deeply and forms the foundation for how we prioritize solution development.
