Dear Community Member,
It’s been a big year! And we’ve done a lot of events and activities to help grow New Mexico’s tech business community. While it’s true that we like to spread the word about other organizations’ events, we thought it might be useful to take a look at the events NMTC has put together. In 2013 that includes:
Startup Weekend Santa Fe (3/1-3)
Startup Weekend Albuquerque (6/21-23)
6 Tech Thursdays
6 Entrepreneurial Mixers
9 Women in Technology Events
9 NM Cybersecurity Events
22 Web/Software Meetups
Additionally there are several events in which NMTC played a leading or significant supporting role:
ABQ Civic Tech Day (6/1) with UNM and the City of Albuquerque!
ABQ Tech Fiesta (9/7-15) with the Albuquerque Tech Community!
TechJunction ABQ* (11/7) by TechJunction!
Google DevFest* (11/9) by GDG Albuquerque!
We’re excited to work with community partners in continuing to make New Mexico a great place for tech business to thrive. If you’re not already a paid member, we hope you’ll consider joining us: http://www.nmtechcouncil.org/membership-options!
One way to help shine a spotlight on the great work going on in New Mexico is by recognizing the state’s top female talents in the tech world at our big Women in Tech celebration coming February 6th in Albuquerque. Nominations are due soon! Find more information HERE: http://www.nmtechcouncil.org/newsevents/wit2014
