From Albuquerque Business First reporter Dan Mayfield...
A jewelry company, a software firm and a company that makes parts for pinball machines are just some of the nine companies chosen to join the 2015 group of Creative Startups firms.
Creative Startups, now its second year, is an accelerator that helps companies based in the creative economy launch quickly — much like ABQid does for tech firms — by using a business accelerator curriculum. The teams will participate in six weeks of business-development sessions and travel to Albuquerque to work with experts, mentors and investors to quickly grow their businesses.
The demo day for the companies will be in October, said Roxanne Blair, director of programs at Creative Startups.
