Our portfolio companies have been cleaning up at recent pitch competitions! First, Innobright Technologies took home the grand prize at Rise of the Rest in October. AOL founder Steve Case invested $100,000 in Innobright which was a huge win for them, ABQid, and the entire City of Albuquerque! Second, Metapipe took home the top award in the 3rd annual Scrappy Startup Competition on November 17th. The big prize included one ticket to SXSW is Austin, one day of vendor space at SXSW, automatic entry into the ABQid Ski Lift Pitch Competition, and $500! ABQid companies know how to pitch and we are proud of it! We want to congratulate these companies on their pitch success and want to thank everyone who participated in these events for continuing to grow the startup scene in Albuquerque!
