We help to strengthen local economies

New Mexico Community Capital (NMCC) is a private, nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and Native American CDFI that provides capital and knowledge for New Mexico’s high-potential businesses in emerging or underserved markets.

Since inception in 2004, NMCC has looked at the world through a different lens, part venture capital and part non-profit.  Unlike any traditional venture capital fund, the NMCC fund management company is a wholly owned subsidiary of a non-profit, 501(c)3  parent.  By way of this unique relationship, the organization combines the potential of venture capital with private-public sector and not-for-profit resources to help high-potential businesses grow. NMCC and it’s premier nonprofit program NEIR (Native Entrepreneur in Residence) have the mission of providing entrepreneurial skills and access to capital in Native American communities, with the goal of creating economic self-sufficiency, diversification, growth and sustainability.

NMCC’s staff has more than 75 years of combined expertise in venture capital, business operations, finance and non-profit management. As a result, our team has the expertise, experience, and networks to identify and invest in businesses capable of creating meaningful social and financial value.
