The ABQid Ski Lift Pitch Contest will offer entrepreneurs an opportunity to pitch their startup ideas to VIP judges (VCs, industry leaders, executives) on the lift at Taos Ski Valley. We believe that the connection made between entrepreneurs and investors while skiing at Taos will be much more valuable than a connection made at a traditional conference. Contest participants will be competing for a cash prize, and, just as importantly, they will each have the opportunity to connect with potential mentors, partners and investors.
At the event, pre-selected founders will have the opportunity to pitch to VIP judges while riding up the ski lift together. The skier’s version of the elevator pitch = 5 to 10 minutes to tell your story while riding the lift plus ample opportunity to connect with the VIP judges throughout the day.
The VIP judges will choose finalists who will have the opportunity to pitch to the event audience over lunch. A winner will be announced and a cash prize awarded during the après ski event and celebration at the end of the day.
Skiing together at Taos is always a memorable experience, and we believe the entrepreneurs who participate are likely to make valuable connections with the investors and other VIPs at the event.
Date and Venue:
Wednesday, February 25th, 2015 at Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico
