Albuquerque Business First held its inaugural BizTech Technology & Innovation Awards ceremony on April 25, 2013 and guess who won in the Executive category? Our own founder, Stuart Rose.
Recognized for his efforts in founding The BioScience Center and creating a space that celebrates the spirit of innovation and encourages “business collisions,” Stuart spoke about the need to collaborate and develop more Centers like ours through0out the State. We like to call is Coopetition.
Stuart believes we are all here for the good of the economy and our small businesses. In his speech, he said we need to have a critical mass of incubators/accelerators in NM if we are to attract attention from enough funding sources. It is our hope that we will be able to set up shared program, speakers and mentors among all the incubators and accelerators. Working together we create critical mass that calls attention to the region and shows that INCUBATION WORKS!
