Creative Startups Accelerator launches in Middle East

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Kuwait’s first business accelerator will launch this summer with a Made-in-New Mexico stamp.

Albuquerque’s Creative Startups program signed a license agreement in January with the private equity firm Messilah Ventures to use its curriculum and resources for training and mentoring entrepreneurs from around the Middle East. The first two startup cohorts will take place this summer and fall.
