Our 3rd Annual will take place on February 28, 2017
A new kind of pitch.
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. This winter, ABQid has teamed up with the Taos Ski Valley and the New Mexico True campaign to bring New Mexico’s entrepreneurial community together for a special event. And no, there’s no elevators involved. Not the usual kind, anyway.
On February 28th, 2017 at Taos Ski Valley in Taos, NM, a select few ambitious startup founders will be invited to ski Taos’ beautiful and challenging slopes alongside national venture capitalists, angel investors, industry experts, and serial entrepreneurs, pitching their businesses while riding the newly-opened lift to Kachina Peak. Our long day on the slopes will culminate in a pitch contest between three select startups, where the winner will receive an impressive cash prize.
We’ll start with breakfast, followed by startup pitches to VIP judges on the lift, finalist pitches over lunch, an afternoon run, then an après ski event where the winner will be announced.

More judges to be announced soon!
Taos is a four letter word for steep.
That means if you’re interested in joining us, you should probably know how to ski or snowboard. We’re looking for ten ambitious, driven local startups with outdoorsy founders.
Not a startup founder? We’d still love to hit the slopes with you. For those that would like to attend this exciting event without competing, stay tuned for ticket information.
