ABQid Ski Lift Pitch Contest Application
Please complete the form below to apply for the 2020 ABQid Ski Lift Pitch Contest. Note that your presence in Taos Ski Valley, NM on the evening of Wednesday, February 19th and throughout the day on Thursday, February 20th, is required in order to compete. Each team is required to have a skier or snowboarder who can pitch to investors on the ski slopes--Taos does not allow rider-only lift rides; you must ski down, and Taos is steep! If your company makes it to the semi-final round, a non-skiing team member may pitch then.

Accommodations, meals, and lift tickets will be provided for the competing member of every selected company. The winner of the grand prize will receive $10,000 in prize money (non-dilutive funding, thanks to our awesome sponsors).

The application deadline is 11:59pm MST on Friday, January 24, 2020. Teams invited to compete will be notified by January 29 and must respond within 1 day to secure their spot. Questions? Email info@abqid.com.

No skiers or snowboarders on your team? You can still join us at Taos Ski Valley on February 20th and mingle with the awesome NM startup community by purchasing an event ticket. Visit skiliftpitch.com for more info!
