Start-up business owners frequently do not know how to implement their vision, nor build a secure foundation for growth. Existing businesses get stale and are in need of fresh vision. Individuals are stuck in meaningless, dead-end jobs, barely motivated enough to get out of bed on Monday mornings. They are all in need of the entrepreneurial mindset. Venture Call LLC is here to help guide your business and organization into the unlimited world of possibilities that lie within your reach.

In 2014, Albuquerque became the first in the world to introduce Entrepreneurial Mindset Training at the City level to unleash human potential, empower people, and transform the way the city works. In spring 2016 that transformation extended far into the future as twelve APS students became the first youth to explore the mindset. Some of the city’s most accomplished entrepreneurs signed on in support of the APS Pilot Program and our students, investing their time and experience in a better future. Partners in the Pilot Program included City of Albuquerque, CNM, HDIC and the Albuquerque Community Foundation.
