ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — IT services provider Kosh Solutions was already a four-year-old company with $600,000 in revenue and seven employees when it moved into the WESST Enterprise Center in December 2009.
Co-founders Josh Fristoe and Koert Council launched the firm in Las Cruces in September 2005, building the business from scratch on their own. But when they decided to expand to Albuquerque, they turned to WESST.
“We were the first company to move into the Enterprise Center,” Fristoe said. “We helped WESST design the data infrastructure and network for the building.”
The company grew rapidly, moving within a few years from an initial 200-square-foot office into a 1,000-square-foot space at the incubator. Apart from infrastructure and mentoring, WESST provided networking opportunities for Kosh to build its customer base, plus a loan to buy equipment.
