Physical Offices

Consider an office through the Cecchi Venture Lab program at the Lobo Rainforest Building at Broadway and Central (101 Broadway Blvd. NE) at the heart of Innovate ABQ, Albuquerque’s growing innovation district downtown. The UNM Rainforest Innovations CVL incubator program provides shared office facilities, business services, mentoring, advice, and the proximity to downtown. The incubator provides fully enclosed, furnished offices and conference rooms for meetings. The CVL also provides a Co-working/Virtual Program that’s ideal for start-up businesses just getting off the ground. Available to UNM- and UNM Rainforest Innovations-affiliated inventors, business owners and professionals, the virtual package provides support and facilities on a short-term basis and is perfect for those who seek a physical business identity but prefer to work for the most part from home or elsewhere.

For more information or to apply for office space, contact Cara Michaliszyn, Director of Economic Development at UNM Rainforest Innovations.
