C3 is an integral part of the Lobo Rainforest Building in downtown Albuquerque. By co-locating members of our technology transfer team with others from University of New Mexico and Air Force Research Laboratory, we are collectively helping to amplify technology transfer impact across New Mexico.
Sandia’s Entrepreneur Exploration (EEx) Program, part of C3, is designed to invigorate an entrepreneurial culture at the Labs and inspire entrepreneurs to either go into the business world or develop that innovative mindset while remaining at the Labs. The program is aimed at deploying technology for mission success and includes a series of events including workshops, roundtables, webinars, office hours, and Sandia’s Lab Pitch Competition. Community leaders, entrepreneurs and Sandians attend these events. C3 provides users the opportunity to take advantage of the vibrant entrepreneurial and startup ecosystem downtown. Sandia offers the Entrepreneur Exploration program, focused on linking Sandia principal investigators with entrepreneurial opportunities and resources provided by a multitude of partners.
