The Bernalillo County/Albuquerque area is teeming, as it always has been, with business creation potential.

There is a major push today to capture this potential. This is evidenced in the many configurations of incubators and start-up programs filling our coffers. These boast enticing the savvy high tech and niche industry entrepreneurs. This is good news and important work. We want and must foster, retain and attract talent to our county. It is how we prosper individually and as a community.

That said, there is continued energy and innovation among the workhorses of the business world: the mom and pop operations, the small manufacturers, the service industries and behemoths such as major institutions and large-scale corporations. All are essential to the business landscape; each is a strategic cog in the local business wheel. Bernalillo County Economic Development works daily with these companies in our business community to help them to maintain and improve their commerce so that as the newcomers settle into town, a solid, thriving infrastructure is in place for their enterprise to take root sooner and with more success.

If you own a small business or are thinking of starting one, please call us. We are here to help. Our assistance is broad brush: Free business summits featuring local business leaders and free core business courses offered through our Strategic Alliance with the SBA and Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce. Also, we will meet with you one on one to discuss your ideas and examine your challenges and see what resources and referrals are available to help you promote or remedy either.

Further, there are many financial programs at both county and state levels that may be applicable to your business endeavors, so let’s talk. Your success is ours and it achieves an important goal: an enhanced quality of life for everyone in Bernalillo County.

We look forward to hearing from you.
