    The Smalls is down in Albuquerque, NM - T5 Part2!

    Listen in as your hosts Just Nate and DK are down in Albuquerque, NM attending the New Space New Mexico T5.  T5 is their Third Thirsty Thursday Tech Talks.  This event happens every 3rd Thursday of every month.  Great networking, great food and great drinks.  The Smalls was invited to come down and set up a booth to record some podcasts during the event.

    During this podcast (Part 2 of the T5) your hosts talk to two people that work at New Space NM.  We sit down with Erika Hecht and Merridith Ingram.  

    For over 20 years, Founder Erika Woldman Hecht has been solving business strategy and marketing problems and helping companies grow smarter, faster, and better. She has taken her experience and packaged it into a proprietary process that saves clients time while putting them on a direct path to achieving desired outcomes.

    Erika’s experience includes consulting full-time for IBM; running marketing and worldwide business development at a regionally accredited online university; working in senior roles at award-winning advertising agencies; and serving in multiple senior marketing roles at SPSS, a pioneer and global leader in predictive analytics.  During her tenure at SPSS, Erika held responsibilities for the desktop, emerging technologies, and enterprise solutions businesses.

    Erika is a proponent of integrated sales and marketing and she has won awards from both sales and marketing leaders. Erika often sits at the intersection of business strategy, marketing, and sales while serving the needs of buyers.

    Passionate about education, Erika is a life-long learner and volunteers as programming director for her local chapter of the American Marketing Association to further the development of marketing professionals with the latest advances and thinking in the field.

    Whether taking buyers or learners on a journey with a brand, Erika is focused on delivering strategies, programs, and experiences that use the best inputs and processes to create the best outcomes.

    Erika's Market Ascent company website is located:  https://marketascent.com/

    Merridith has 18 years of experience leading agency account teams in the development and implementation of corporate, brand and product communications and marketing campaigns for financial services and technology clients, including Microsoft, Intuit, Capital One and Philips. As a former Dow Jones journalist, she specializes in messaging, positioning, content strategy/development and social media strategy. Most recently, she led a research project for Microsoft’s Government Cloud division to identify the best channels to reach technology decision-makers at the federal, state and local levels. She also leads PR efforts for the Internet Society centered on technology policy and history. Prior to co-founding 66 + Co, Merridith was a vice president in the Global Consumer Marketing and Technology practices at Manning, Selvage & Lee (now MSLGroup Americas), and led financial media relations efforts for technology startups at Morgen-Walke (now FTI Consulting).

    The Smalls talks to New Mexico FAST!

    Listen in as your hosts Just Nate and Dennis talk to Del Mackey from Arrowhead Center New Mexico Fast.  

    Del Mackey
    Technology Transfer and Industry Engagement Manager

    Del Mackey is the Technology Transfer and Industry Engagement Manager for Arrowhead Inc. In this role, Del works to build partnerships and relationships with external organizations that have research areas or growth initiatives that align with Arrowhead Center goals, either in moving NMSU IP to commercial markets or in serving the ever-expanding Arrowhead client network. Del comes to this position with extensive experience in innovation, fostering new products and initiatives at small businesses across New Mexico, matching technical prowess and capabilities with unique funding opportunities, and delivering workshops on meeting your commercialization needs. Over the past several years, Del has worked with over 90 companies to assist them in developing their innovative idea into a feasible product road map. Through his time at Arrowhead Center, and prior experience in the commercial market, Del has built relationships with numerous organizations, both large and small businesses and federal funding agencies, to help drive the economic/innovation ecosystem of the state of New Mexico.

    He holds a Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies from National University, and an MBA from NMSU.

    Del can be reached at
    delmacke@nmsu.edu or (575) 646-1815

    Our podcast starts with a Chinese Proverb "The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step".  

    What is NM FAST?
    The NM Federal and State Technology (NM FAST) partnership program provides SBIR and STTR proposal development assistance to small businesses throughout NM. Securing federal funding for your innovative idea or technology is a critical step towards commercial success. The SBIR and STTR programs, often referred to as “America’s Seed Fund,” are an excellent source of undiluted funding, but are highly competitive. NM FAST provides the resources, support, and expertise necessary to submit a highly competitive proposal.

    While NM FAST primarily focuses on the innovative companies in the state of New Mexico, we can provide limited assistance to companies in other states. If you are not incorporated in New Mexico, head to this link and we will try to put you in touch with a local service provider that can assist you.

    New Mexico Fast SBIR/STTR Innovation Summit starts soon.  Register here

    Wednesday, December 15th
    8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
