“Working on the NM FAST team satisfies a personal passion that I have, which is to help entrepreneurs throughout New Mexico to grow sustainable jobs and ultimately work on commercializing products that enhance our global position in the world,” said Todd Bisio, NM FAST entrepreneurial adviser.

NM FAST has facilitated 12 workshops throughout the state since its inception in October 2015.
