New Mexico's Technology Triangle (T2) is an industry-driven non-profit regional development alliance affiliated with New Mexico Tech University that supports the growth of entrepreneurship, talent and innovation in New Mexico's green manufacturing industries.
The Initiative addresses three major challenges:
- Accelerate industry innovation, technology commercialization and small business development;
- Generate pipelines of workers to fill these jobs with higher-order thinking, language and reasoning sills as well as fundamental technology skills needed by businesses; and
- Create an ideal public policy environment for producing those workers.
Additionally, the initiative brings together capital, corporate, R&D, educational, workforce and government resources in a cycle of cluster business demand and workforce supply.
