Become a Leader of Your Startup Venture

Our Vision

To generate economic development in our state through the creation and operation of scalable business ventures led by students and alumni of UNM and other colleges and universities in New Mexico.

The UNM Business Plan Competition Program has undergone a transformation into the UNM Entrepreneurial Challenge focused on planning and leadership to develop startup ventures in New Mexico. Our program’s success will be evaluated on the formation of startup ventures within 18 months of entering our program and successfully operating their ventures beyond their first year of operation. Our priority is achieving quality of preparation over quantity of participants.

Why We Are Doing This

We are on a mission to develop the next generation of impactful business leaders in New Mexico through the discipline of planning and execution, and the diligence of leadership.
