This one’s for the dreamers
This week we launched the applications to our newest startup education program, Creative Startups LABS!
Whether newly entering the marketplace, still working on that prototype, or trying to figure out how to get an idea off the ground, this program was designed for you. The LABS are a bootcamp for entrepreneurs with the goal to launch early ideas into actionable startups.
Let’s talk about the program
Who should apply?
New Mexico residents eager to grow a startup. (Sorry, non-NM entrepreneurs. Nothing personal, this program is in-person and would be hard to attend if you don’t live here.)
What topics will be covered?
Business concepts and strategy. Your vision, mission, customers and opportunity. MVP, sales pipeline, and much much more. We will spend time on your startup assessing the market landscape and how best to launch, grow, or pivot your idea.
4 weeks; meeting twice a week
March 31st — April 22nd.
Friday nights from 5:30pm — 8pm; and Saturdays from 9am — 3pm.
All classes will be at Epicenter in downtown Albuquerque. There is free parking (yea!), and the venue is a block from the Railrunner and bus stop.
$225 — includes materials.
This ridiculously low price is thanks to our amazing sponsors City of Albuquerque, Small Business Association, New Mexico EPSCoR, and the McCune Foundation.
How the application works
Just like our Accelerator, Creative Startups LABS has a competitive application with limited space being offered. The application has easy questions that reveal the story behind your startup. Not only do we want to know about your creative business ideas and progress in building a company, but we want to know about you the entrepreneur.
Applications for the LABS are open until February 28th at 11:59pm MST. While we suspect the application will only take about an hour to complete, you have the ability to draft your progress and return anytime until the deadline.
We know you have LOTS of questions. This is why we have two information sessions scheduled mid-way through the application period to answer them.
Still have questions or want to chat with us? We are here for you!
Fill out this short inquiry form and we will be in touch.
