Supporting the Entrepreneur


Jobs & Capital

In 2019, the State of New Mexico identified the Centers of Excellence in HB 7 whose goal is to support and drive innovation in growing economic sectors and build closer links between research and industry. The NM Bioscience Authority is a Bioscience Center of Excellence based on its administrative oversight by the University of New Mexico Health Science Center. As such, we have compiled resources from across the state to support entrepreneurs, start-up businesses, and fledgling companies expand their operations within the state of New Mexico.

Programs directed by the NM BSA like the Community Readiness Program can help entrepreneurs find the right site for them throughout the state and our partnership with the opens in a new windowASCEND (Accelerating Solutions for Commercialization and Entrepreneurial Development) Hub can support the preparation and submission of Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) funding requests from the federal government.

A catalog of Incentives for New Mexico Bioscience Businesses highlights resources available from across the state to support entrepreneurs interested in moving to New Mexico or expanding their operations within New Mexico.
