About Ski Lift Pitch

Since its first year in 2014, ABQid’s Ski Lift Pitch competition has brought national attention to New Mexico. The event now puts the state on the map as a place where snow-loving investors and startups convene to identify new business opportunities and build new professional relationships.

ABQid’s Ski Lift Pitch Contest began with a crazy idea: startup teams pitch their companies to prestigious investors while they ride the lift together to the top of the mountain. After multiple rounds of pitching in this format in groups of four, top startups from each group pitch on stage for a chance to win $10,000 non-dilutive capital.

Former contest winners include Taos Mountain Energy BarsUBQidEquiSeq, and Twistle, but really, all competitors are winners because they get the opportunity to forge intentional relationships with multiple investors from around the country. This brings value to investors and startups long after the end of the event.
