Salud, ITConnect Inc.! 

SFBI anchor tenant ITConnect Inc. graduated this summer, consolidating locations in its own building at 7505 Mallard Way. 
Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales congratulated Kareem Edwards, Founder and CEO, and Mary Jo Edwards of ITConnect Inc., after presenting a City Proclamation declaring June 22, 2015 as ITConnect Inc. day in Santa Fe.
During its time as an Incubator client company, ITConnect Inc. expanded: it added locations in Denver and Phoenix, grew to 50 full time and 20 part-time employees, and purchased a warehouse building in addition to its office space.

"As a result of the benefits SFBI provides, the Incubator was a great place to start, get nurtured, and grow." -Kareem Edwards, President and Founder
Mayor Javier Gonzales presented a Proclamation to Kareem Edwards, a native New Mexican and founder of ITConnect Inc. during a meeting of the Committee for Business and Quality of Life (CBQL).
The Mayor said ITConnect is a great testament to what can happen in the community when people believe that Santa Fe is not only a great place to start a business, but to build a business. He said the City will continue to build on the legacy ITConnect has provided. 

City Proclamation:

Kareem thanked the City of Santa Fe and said without their support to the Incubator, ITConnect could not have grown as they did. He added: "We at ITConnect hope to continue to be a vital company in Santa Fe and in the State of New Mexico."
