An easier way to find funding. 

Verge Fund

Verge only invests in regional southwestern companies, but places priority on New Mexico companies. Investments are made in the seed or first round, and active involvement in the company is the norm.

Verge will make later-stage investments only in follow-on rounds of existing portfolio companies as their business models are validated and the risk factors are reduced. Their focus is primarily on investments in technology businesses including cleantech, electronics and materials, human factors and software-as-a-service.
