Activate New Mexico (ActivateNM) helps startup founders build valuable businesses that are going to disrupt a particular market through big visions and innovative, transformative ideas. We also believe that entrepreneurs are more likely to succeed when they are surrounded by a community of support. ActivateNM is committed to nurturing New Mexico’s entrepreneurial community and thus, promoting prosperity in our state.
We run cohorts throughout the year, first onboarding new participants through the Accelerator Program, then moving them into a community of mentors and founders to help fine-tune their position in the market and the business case. Currently we are focused on technology-based startups with an emphasis on software and industry 4.0.

Our Founding Partners
WESST and ABQid came together in 2018 to provide support to up-and-coming companies. Without the structural support of WESST, this program could not have grown as it has. WESST provides business services to entrepreneurs who are making a difference in New Mexico, and we are privileged to be part of the same shared network.
