This group welcomes all New Mexico entrepreneurs who use the Internet to enhance their business opportunities both virtually and in person within their local communities, throughout the state, and globally. Whether or not you are an entrepreneur with a website, you must be a Facebook member to join this group. Further, your Facebook profile photo must be reflective of you as a businessperson.
Joining our Facebook group is a requirement as it has been set up not only to help orchestrate in-person Meetups within our communities but also to facilitate virtual meetings and events, many of which will be held in our Facebook group or on the New Mexico Internet Entrepreneurs Facebook fan page.
As of April 4, 3017, every member of the New Mexico Internet Entrepreneurs Meetup Group must have a complete profile, including a photo reflective of themselves as a business person. As this group is focused on fruitful business connections, members choosing not to make themselves identifiable as outlined and wishing to stay involved in the group are urged to communicate their reasoning for non-compliance with the group organizer.
The business startup landscape has changed dramatically since Eric Ries popularized the "Lean Start Up methodology" in his 2011 book. In 2015 Ries discovered the power of crowdsourcing through crowdfunding his subsequent book, The Leader's Guide, on Kickstarter. In 31 days 9,677 backers pledged $588,903 to support his publication initiative. In that book he wrote, "If you’re succeeding in business, you are always sowing the seeds of your own destruction, and therefore you always have to be reinventing yourself to stay relevant. It’s a perpetual challenge that all firms face."

If you are want to sustain and grow your business utilizing the latest Internet success strategies, techniques, tools, and resources with a passion for making a positive difference through your entrepreneurial pursuits this is group is for you.
