New Mexico State University’s Arrowhead Center Entrepreneurship Institute is looking for entrepreneurs and innovators in need of business assistance. Clients selected will receive specialized support as well as relevant, timely and practical business research.
“Entrepreneurship is a key component of reinvigorating the economy,” said Sara Pirayesh Sanders, entrepreneurship director for the Arrowhead Center. “Business research is critical to the success of small businesses because it allows you to have a better understanding of where you are and where you’re going.”
Services are customized to fit start-up businesses as well as established ones. Assistance is available to all business types. Businesses are chosen on a variety of factors, including the degree to which they contribute to economic development in New Mexico.
The deadline for project submissions is Jan. 15, 2011. The submission form is available online at http://arrowhead.nmsu.edu/arrowheadcenter/entrepreneurship/business-assistance.html.
The Arrowhead Center promotes economic and business development in New Mexico through a wide range of services, including entrepreneurship development, technology-based business incubation, policy analysis, assistance with intellectual property, and by managing NMSU’s business and research park.
