Last Thursday was a full day of checking out local companies and startups. It started with Innovate New Mexico, put on by Albuquerque Business First. They had a ‘World Fair’ type competition of local startups and gave out several awards at the end.
I wasn’t able to attend Innovate New Mexico, but in the evening there was the Tech.Co demo day at El Rey. I was able to attend this fun event and check out local companies presenting their products. Most of the companies have been around at various events, but it was great to get updates on what they were doing and see their software. This event was a little different that others I had been to. In the past the events are usually pitches, but at this event many of the companies got up and gave live demonstrations.
Some of the companies presenting:
The keynote of the night was Andy Lim (of Lavu) showing off his new company Addmi.
I always enjoy supporting and learning about our local entreprenuers. If you are sorry you missed it don’t worry. Mark down August 22nd on your calendar. That will be the next Tech.co event, Startup of the Year Pitch. Follow them on twitter @techcoabq to stay up to date!
