Arrowhead Center at New Mexico State University is now accepting applications for its U.S. Economic Development Administration University Center for Regional Commercialization, which provides a mix of business assistance services designed to help foster economic development within New Mexico’s commercialization ecosystem.
Venture research, impact studies and entrepreneurial training are available through University Center to startups, expanding businesses and governmental organizations in New Mexico. Zetdi Sloan, director of University Center, said the center offers targeted, market intelligence and financial intelligence services to aid entrepreneurs in making faster and more well-informed decisions.
“Starting or expanding a business is all about making informed strategies and taking calculated steps toward generating revenue and obtaining funding,” Sloan said. “To do this, you need to be informed about the facts and figures of the market and feel the pulse of your customers. However, without reliable data, you won’t be able to accomplish any of these goals.”
University Center addresses strategic development and growth challenges such as penetrating new markets, securing funding and refining business models.
