Women & minority-owned business programs
Women- and minority-owned businesses comprise an expanding segment of our state's entrepreneurial economy. Understanding the additional challenges they face, the NMSBDC provides training tailored to the specific needs of these entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship training can be provided in Spanish within the network of NMSBDC offices across the state.
Veterans Information Programs
Many veterans retire here as a result of the significant military presence in New Mexico. NMSBDC provides direct assistance to many existing veteran-owned small businesses, as well as to veterans and soon-to-be veterans interested in starting a business. NMSBDC offices located near military installations often provide on-site entrepreneurship training in cooperation with the military's Transition Assistance Program (TAP).
