You are invited to attend the final round of the Research University Team Award Pitch Competition at the Lobo Rainforest Building on Thursday, May 2, 2024 at 4:00 p.m. to hear the five finalists pitch to judges from the Technology Research Collaborative Board.

Finalists will present a 10 minute pitch deck with 5 additional minutes of question and answer in front of a panel of judges.

The New Mexico Research University Team Pitch Award Pilot Program is a competitive state-funded grant that awards non-dilutive grant funds and entrepreneurship assistance to science and technology commercialization proposals from faculty/student teams at New Mexico universities. Selected proposals will be awarded between $100,000 and $200,000. Awardees will also receive approximately $50,000 worth of entrepreneurship consultant services.

Through this award, the New Mexico Economic Development Department seeks to further the commercialization of science and technology-based products or services created at New Mexico universities, assisting innovators to become a New Mexico-based business.
