Creating a Culture of Prosperity

The CNM Small Business Development Center (SBDC) helps people start and run small businesses that generate wealth for their owners. In the strictest sense, the CNM SBDC is in the business of creating and nurturing skilled entrepreneurs and strong businesses.

You can be an entrepreneur if you invest your time, energy and resources in a business that provides others with a valuable or needed product or service. Your good idea planted in well-prepared ground and tended conscientiously can grow into a business. As your business grows, you will hire employees; this is the very essence of "grassroots" economic development. It is our mission to help you maximize the return on your investment.
