This HD3 signature event will be held at the Rio Rancho Intel Campus and focus on statewide innovation, commercialization and start-up opportunities arising from New Mexico’s millennial age population.
“New Mexico has a great many 20 and 30-something entrepreneurs and innovators. Last year during the Millennial Innovation Discovery Day @ Intel, HD3 discovered several millennial innovators who have since gone on to start and accelerate their innovation with our assistance,” stated Michelle D. Miller, Founder and CEO of HD3. “We cannot be more thrilled with our Intel partnership and look forward to hosting this event again with their involvement.”
“Intel, building on our heritage of innovation, has a deep commitment to supporting entrepreneurs and connecting young people to their potential. We are excited to host the Millennial Innovation: HD3 Discovery Day™ @ Intel for the second year. By working with organizations such as HD3, our goal is to help build capacity for market-creating innovation and economic development within our state,” explained Liz Shipley, Intel New Mexico Director of Public Affairs.
