Thirteen entrepreneurs have participated in Santa Fe Innovate’s 2021 Ideation Process and Program. They have spent the past five weeks testing, iterating, and advancing their startup ideas using Lean Startup and Lean Canvas concepts and tools. The program wraps up in the fifth week with an idea pitch competition.
Join us May 15, 2021 at 10:00am MDT as our entrepreneurs pitch their ideas for three minutes via Zoom. Our panel of judges will follow-up with questions for each entrepreneur for an additional three minutes. The top two ideas, as determined by our judges, will receive added incentives to continue work on their startup ideas.
We are grateful for the support of the City of Santa Fe and the Economic Development Department, especially for the added incentives for the top ideas.
