Albuquerque is Creative Startups Accelerator original location, and has hosted three cohorts since starting in 2014. The intensive 6-week program virtual program is open to all startups regardless of location. Startups will critically analyze their business model and are provided tools and training to combat tough situations. The final week all startups, mentors, and investors will travel to Albuquerque, NM to work together and network during the Deep Dive, with public Demo Day and pitch competition.

Program Fee - We DO NOT take equity in your company. Because of that, there is a fee: $895 per person. Not sure about the fee? Reach out to us! There is no fee to apply. Because we're subsidized by government and non-government organizations, that is the only cost to you except airfare. Everything else is included:

All materials & supplies.
All food and lodging for the week-long Deep Dive at the Andaluz Hotel in ABQ
12 months of mentoring.
If we were not subsidized, the fee for the program would be closer to $17,000.
Resources -
No equity taken.
