Who We Are

The CNM SBDC is a unit of the New Mexico Small Business Development Center Network (NMSBDC), which consists of 19 centers statewide. Our business advisors provide expert, confidential advice to enterprising New Mexicans. The SBDC offers individual counseling, conducts seminars and training sessions, sponsors conferences, provides information electronically as well as in-person and by telephone, and, in general, assists anyone seeking advice about operating a small business.

The SBDC does not charge for counseling. However, for most workshops, seminars and conferences, the SBDC does charge a reasonable fee to cover expenses.

The CNM SBDC serves Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties. For an SBDC near you visit the NMSBDC website.


The SBA is a federal program that provides financial, technical, and management assistance to help Americans start, run and grow their businesses.

The SBDC is an SBA resource partner. Although the SBA sponsors and administers the SBDC program, an important aspect of the program is its acceptance and financial support by state and local governments, educational and business communities, and private foundations. Because these organizations desire to improve economic development through the growth of small businesses, they provide matching funds that frequently exceed the SBA funds allocated to each SBDC.
