It was a pleasure for Aqua Research to host Governor Susana Martinez and Economic Development Department Secretary Jon Barela at the Bio Science Center on June 15 for the signing of the New Mexico Angels Tax Credit Extension Bill. Every one of my New Mexico investors told me that the investment tax credit was extra incentive to invest in promising New Mexico start-ups like ours. Not only does it help entrepreneurs with great ideas to develop new technologies and market opportunities, but it also has an early ripple effect into the community. While we only have 5 employees at right now, we also hire a significant number of contractors who help us with specific projects, or local vendors who supply or make parts for our development projects, which allowed us to bring our H2gO Purifier to market more quickly. The H2gO Purifier is an example of the kinds of outstanding products that entrepreneurs in New Mexico are creating with the help of local investors.
