Three entrepreneurs in the high desert of New Mexico are shattering an important myth – that there is not enough talent in the interior of the USA to create world-class companies...
...The implications for the rest of the country are significant. For managers, the moral is that you can thrive outside the traditional centers of business, by adjusting your approach to talent. For venture capital investors, the lesson is that you can make excellent returns by backing the right entrepreneur – the likes of Andy Lim, Chris Ziomek, and Terry Dunlay – who will find talent, even in the desert.

Great article by Kevin McDonald (an investment banker in Albuquerque, NM) about entrepreneurs here in the state, attacking a myth about New Mexico: that you can't find talent for start-ups. You absolutely can...you just may need a different approach.
Savsu is delighted to be located in Albuquerque, NM. We love our town and our state. We are hiring and finding really smart, talented young people who love life in ABQ. Here is a little secret: Albuquerque and Santa Fe are attracting an increasing number of tech businesses like ours. Why? Great technology (UNM, Sandia Labs, Los Alamos Labs), great weather (for golfing, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, rafting), great beer (really great beer...see article here), great food, great art and a great airport (yeah you usually have to connect but, you can park right next to the terminal and walk in for Pete's sake!). Oh and it is affordable. Come visit.
