Entrepreneurs and investors alike are all-too familiar with a typical elevator pitch. We think New Mexico is known more for its elevations than its elevators. ABQid has teamed up with Taos Ski Valley to bring the best entrepreneurs from around the country together for a special event.
Ski Lift Pitch brings the most promising startups and top-level investors to New Mexico. Entrepreneurs will have one-on-one pitches with multiple investors as they ride the ski lift at over 9,300 feet. Judges will select a small portion of these entrepreneurs to pitch to another group of prestigious investors after lunch. Following the pitches, entrepreneurs, judges, investors, community members, and media will be able to free ski before enjoying pretzels and beer at the legendary Bavarian Lodge, at the base of Kachina Peak. Meanwhile, judges will be deliberating which entrepreneur will be taking home the $10,000 grand prize!
Festivities begin the evening of February 21 with a VIP reception for sponsors and judges followed by dinner to include participants. The main event begins the morning of February 22, incldues a lunch pitch event and finishes with an award presentation and reception at 4:00pm.
Applications close January 18th!
