Commissioner Simon Kubiak, Bernalillo County and The Loan Fund officials today celebrated the grand opening of Zero Point Parkour, a new fitness gymnasium supported by the Increment of 1 initiative and the Bernalillo County Revolving Loan Fund.
Zero Point Parkour, located at 1100 3rd Street N.W., offers a unique physical fitness and training program based on parkour, a sport that involves overcoming obstacles through creative running, jumping and climbing, for example.
The new Downtown business is supported by a $20,000 loan from the Bernalillo County Revolving Loan Fund, a unique partnership aimed at helping new and established small businesses in Bernalillo County. The business currently supports two full-time and three part-time jobs.
“I’m proud to support small businesses and job creation in Bernalillo County,” Commissioner Simon Kubiak says. “This successful program has been a big help to entrepreneurs seeking to start new ventures, and to help small businesses access financing.”
The Bernalillo County Revolving Loan Fund is a partnership between Bernalillo County and the private New Mexico Community Development Loan Fund. The loan fund has supported 28 businesses and the creation of 43 jobs since being established in August 2010. The current balance of the loan fund is $454,298.
