Membership allows you to be part of an active community of entrepreneurs and mentors in New Mexico. The focus of membership is to grow your venture and your capacity as a startup founder. During the accelerator program, you focused your time on validating your product and discovering new markets. The goal now is to continue learning, building, and pivoting your company until you get investment. It is a continuous process and relationship with the community.
