SFid launches a pilot accelerator program in January 2016 for four to six startups. Backed by The City of Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Community Foundation, SFid will also receive support from the Santa Fe Business Incubator and Startup Santa Fe.
The accelerator, a product of ABQid’s expansion to Santa Fe, will follow the same format as ABQid: Through a selective application process, teams are chosen to participate in the 12-week mentored program that focuses on product testing, research and refining market strategy. The program culminates with Demo Day, when SFid teams present their startups to the Santa Fe community.
Santa Fe and Albuquerque are set to rotate their cohorts: SFid in January and ABQid in June.
