Small Business Development Center

The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at CNM is committed to developing skilled entrepreneurs and strong businesses.

About the SBDC

The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at CNM is part of a larger network of 19 small business development centers with the New Mexico Small Business Development Center (NMSBDC) network. The NMSBDC is a fully accredited member of America’s SBDC. Funding for this program is provided by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the New Mexico State Legislature.

The SBDC at CNM is dedicated to serving the needs of small business owners in Bernalillo and Sandoval counties who need help starting new businesses, growing existing businesses, and staying in business. 

Our business advisors provide expert, confidential advice to enterprising New Mexicans. We believe 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.
