Impact & Coffee is a space where nonprofit leaders, volunteers, board members, funders, and people who want to find their place in the social impact community can come to have a cup of coffee, hear about new social profit ventures and innovation in a 6-minute presentation format, and join in some great conversation to help each other make a positive impact in New Mexico. It’s a great place for networking, meeting new people, and gaining inspiration!

What is Build it Brigade?
Build it Brigade is a program offered by Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails that allows girls to learn the fundamentals of entrepreneurship through a series of hands-on activities delivered right to her door. Girls receive a kit in the mail with all of the materials needed to build a prototype and take it to market with step-by-step instructions and worksheets that help her learn how to build a business plan, marketing plan, and make a pitch.
What is the Build it Brigade Challenge?
We're challenging New Mexico businesses and individuals (grown-ups) who see value in a future with more female entrepreneurs to participate in Build it Brigade just like one of the girls. You'll receive the same materials and instructions with a special bonus... an invitation to pitch your product to a panel of Girl Scout judges!
Each registration for the Build it Brigade Challenge includes:
- A Build it Brigade kit with all of the supplies and instructions to create a product prototype out of LEGOS, develop a business and marketing plan, design product packaging, and pitch your new business idea.
- An invitation to pitch your product and business idea in a Shark Tank-style competition judged by girls.
- Verbal and written acknowledgement for your role in supporting future female entrepreneurs.
