FatPipe at the hub of Albuquerque’s innovation scene

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As Albuquerque rebrands itself as a home to entrepreneurs and high-tech startups, it’s relying on co-working hubs like FatPipe ABQ to act as a catalyst for local innovation.

The privately funded entrepreneurial workspace situated in the old Albuquerque High School is becoming a key element in the city’s growing “innovation district.” FatPipe provides not just chairs, desks and whiteboards, it also supports meet-ups, classes and other events to help entrepreneurs connect and collaborate. The long range goal is to help rebuild the local economy.



In this broadcast TV package, FatPipe COO and Director Lisa Atkins and two budding entrepreneurs talk about their efforts. The work was produced by the public affairs team at New Mexico in Focus in partnership with New Mexico News Port.

The show includes an interview with Eric Renz-Whitmore an entrepreneurial consultant who is working to bridge the city’s economic development office with the local innovation scene.

The segment kicks off a three-month series on entrepreneurship in Albuquerque by New Mexico PBS, in collaboration with the News Port.

New Mexico in Focus airs Fridays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 7 a.m. on Channel 5.1. It also airs Saturdays at 5 p.m. on Channel 9.1. It’s produced by Sarah Gustavus.

News Port student contributors are Dominic Aragón,  Erika Eddy, Brian DeGruchy, Kyle Herrera, Tania Martínez and Christian Naranjo.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
