New Mexico’s newest accredited business hub wants to help
“Growing a small business is tough. Why not get some help? New Mexico State University’s Arrowhead Technology Incubator specializes in helping small, technology based businesses get off the ground and it is looking for clients.

The New Mexico Economic Development Department certified the Arrowhead Technology Incubator as the state’s sixth official business incubator earlier this month. It is the only certified incubator in southern New Mexico.
