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 Taos Ski Valley to bring New Mexico’s entrepreneurial community together for a special event. And no, there are 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.

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.
Want to be a part of the action without pitching? Planning to attend in support of a competitor?
The tickets are $35 and include lunch at The Martini Tree, appetizers at The Bavarian, and an invaluable networking opportunity. Tickets for $120 may also be purchased which additionally include a Taos Ski Valley lift ticket.
