Fueling Innovation Through Tax Incentives R&D Intelligence

Fuel Your Innovation and Growth


Our Mission

In almost half a century there has been no considerable advancement in tax credit preparation and R&D intelligence. As a result, businesses are struggling to accelerate their innovation.

Boast is on a mission to change this norm, and to accelerate the success of innovation by helping eligible companies to get quicker access to R&D tax credits.

Driving Faster Innovation Through Tax Incentives and R&D Intelligence

Innovative companies grow 260 percent faster than average companies. Boast helps you access the billions of dollars available in R&D tax credits and funding to improve insights, and grow faster. Our software integrates your financial, engineering, and project data to increase the speed, accuracy, and size of eligible tax incentives. 

Boast improves claim quality, compliance, and audit readiness with our experienced technical staff, and we remove the mystery, complexity, and difficulty from the process to become your R&D source of truth. The faster you differentiate and compete through innovation, the more you win.
