On Thursday, October 3, accepted companies will have 10 minutes (5 min pitch + Q&A) to pitch their company in front of judges at Vara Wines. Judges will then deliberate which company's pitch represents the highest growth potential. Over a locally catered lunch, judges will award a $10,000 cash prize to the winning team, as well as a hot air balloon ride in a mass ascension at the 2019 Balloon Fiesta, Albuquerque's world renowned event!
Your ticket to Balloon Pitch 2019 lets you in on top NM startup pitches and the excitement that unfolds as they try to persuade investors that their idea is best! Guests will enjoy lunch with participating companies, investors, and other members of our entrepreneurial community, as well as a free wine tasting to guests over 21 years of age. ABQid Balloon Pitch 2019 brings startups from New Mexico and beyond together with investor judges from multiple states for a pitch event like no other, just before the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
