Started in 2020, The Silver Entrepreneurship Initiative is aware that starting entrepreneurial projects after traditional careers can be difficult and we want to help you understand whether this is a good idea. We provide mentoring, support, and guidance on resources available in the metropolitan area. 


We provide intro webinars, mentoring, targeted 1:1 education and orientation to other available resources. We cooperate with AARP, with the City of Albuquerque and with other local and federal institutions to provide you with the best support for free.

You will be provided with a list of resources available at CNM and outside of CNM to help you develop your entrepreneurship project. We will assist you in reaching out to these resources while providing support within our Initiative.


All services are provided for free. The only costs that clients might sustain is if they take classes at CNM or use professionals for specialized consulting, such as for legal or tax issues. You do not need to be or become a CNM student to use our services.
