High Desert Discovery District (HD3) – New Mexico’s first privately-lead high-technology start-up accelerator – will partner with the Association of Commerce and Industry, Roswell Chaves County Economic Development Corporation and Delicious New Mexico, to host the next HD3 Discovery Day™ themed “Innovation and Discovery in Agriculture and Food,” Nov. 5-6 in Roswell.
This two-day HD3 signature event will focus on statewide innovation and commercialization opportunities that impact the agriculture, value-added food products and food industries. Roswell Discovery Day will be hosted at the Daniels Leadership Center on the campus of the New Mexico Military Institute.
As with other Discovery Day events, innovators from all over New Mexico are welcome to apply to present their agriculture-related (e.g., water, irrigation, biomass, etc.), food or value-added food discovery to experts, business achievers, entrepreneurs, innovators, management experts and investors.
The application deadline to participate in the Roswell Discovery Day is Oct. 3. Presenters will be announced by Oct. 10. Application details can be found at www.hddd.org.
All Discovery Day presenters are invited to attend the HD3 Networking Cocktail Reception and Casual Supper the evening before Discovery Day.
Since its founding, HD3 has hosted eight Discovery Days throughout the state. HD3 hosts this signature program with R/D, industry partners or economic development entities across New Mexico. Between 12 and 15 innovators are typically selected to present based on the list of criteria developed by HD3. The evening prior to Discovery Day, a social gathering for the selected presenters and the HD3 advisors is hosted. For more information about Discovery Day application criterion, see www.hddd.org.
