Since 2004, thanks to the support of many partners, NMCC has:

  • invested over $15 million in New Mexico companies who have hired or retained 261 employees;
  • brought specialized business expertise and education to over 500 small businesses;
  • provided more than 600 well-paying jobs for residents of lower income areas, primarily lower wage workers who through our efforts are earning a higher wage and are more likely to have access to health care than their counterparts at similar companies; and,
  • provided business and management education to more than 1,000 high-potential entrepreneurs to improve their ability to attract financing needed for accelerated and long-term growth.
