Lobo Rainforest Building – CVL Office Space

NE Corner_Aerial

Coming August 2017

Consider an office at the The Lobo Rainforest Building at Broadway and Central at the heart of Innovate ABQ, Albuquerque’s growing innovation district downtown.

Why do we call it the Lobo Rainforest Building?  Because a human ecosystem is like a rainforest in which human creativity, business acumen, scientific discovery, investment capital, and other elements come together in a special recipe that nurtures budding ideas so they can grow into flourishing and sustainable enterprises.

The first floor will be home to STC, the Cecchi Venture Lab, and the Innovation Academy, UNM’s entrepreneurial program. Everything is co-located on the ground floor so you have more opportunities to meet and work with other inventors, mentors, business advisors, and experienced entrepreneurs from programs such as Innovate New Mexico and the Air Force Research Labs tech engagement office. Other incubators with more programs and events are within walking distance of your office, including Fat Pipe ABQ, ABQid, the Verge Fund, and CNM STEMulus Center’s IGNITE.

For inquires on reservations for Lobo Rainforest Building meeting space, please contact Amber Ortega.

For more information or to apply for office space, contact Cara Michaliszyn or Lisa Kuuttila.
