Two Decades of Business Development
The New Mexico Small Business Development Center Network (NMSBDC) was created in 1989 by the New Mexico State Legislature. For 20 years it has supported the expanding, planning, business financing, and management efforts of more than 94,000 New Mexico businesses
, providing no cost business consulting, affordable workshops, and business training.
Our network of experts is comprised of highly experienced,educated and dedicated staff located in 20 service centers statewide. No cost consulation in international business is also available through our International Business Accelerator (IBA). The Procurement Technical Assistance Program is dedicated to counsel, train and assist New Mexico business owners to obtain government contracts, thereby advancing both entrepreneurship and economic growth in New Mexico.
We are currently redefining our vision and setting new direction with our new State Director. Thus, we are looking forward to launching new initiatives in international trade, rural entrepreneurship, youth entrepreneurship, and business incubation through integration of our host community colleges. We are pleased to announce our newest program "Gateway to Exporting: your Key to international Markets".
The NMSBDC Network is administered from the Lead Center located at the Santa Fe Community College. The Lead Center secures funding, coordinates and orchestrates the activities and provides resources and support to the local centers, as well as outreach on behalf of the statewide network.
Since its inception, the NMSBDC has been affiliated with 17 of New Mexico's schools of higher education and has maintained stratigic partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration and the New Mexico State Legislature. Our statewide presence has been made possible through these partnerships. The NMSBDC Network reaches from small rural communities to metropolitan areas to assist with the business resources, talent, and the encouragement needed to make sound business decisions, and as always, at no cost.
We are a nationally accredited business program and member of Americas Small Business Development Centers.
Our mission is to provide quality assistance, education and resources for potential and existing small businesses to strengthen the economy of New Mexico.
