The award recognizes individuals who make invaluable contributions to New Hampshire’s technology and business community. Albuquerque will be formally recognized at the event’s 30th anniversary celebration on June 13.
Next Step Bionics & Prosthetics, founded in 1996, has offices in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.
“For me, being an entrepreneur means really finding out what motivates you as an individual, then being able to form that notion into a business that provides stable jobs, gives back to the community that supports them, and maintains the sensitive balance between growth and doing the right thing,” Albuquerque said. “I am honored to be the Council’s 30th Entrepreneur of the Year, and I look forward to many more years honoring future entrepreneurs.”
