Startup Pitch Events

We bring promising startups together with active investors to help entrepreneurs take bold steps and grow successful New Mexico companies.

Balloon Pitch Contest

Balloon Pitch brings New Mexico’s top high-growth startups together with investor judges from multiple states representing over $100m in investable capital. It’s a pitch event like no other, just before the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.

Ski Lift Pitch Contest

Ski Lift Pitch puts a twist on the traditional pitch contest. ABQid partners with Taos Ski Valley to bring New Mexico’s entrepreneurial community together for a special kind of pitch event, where start-ups are given six minutes to pitch their idea to investors while they ride the ski lift to the top of the mountain.
