Resources For Entrepreneurs

City Alive is dedicated to making the hard work of entrepreneurs a bit easier.

Ask any entrepreneur about how they made their way to building a successful business, and you’ll get at least a few stories of failure. A bad accountant, a shoddy assumption about the marketplace, a legal misstep—there are hazards everywhere, and some are enough to destroy an entirely viable business idea. But ask the same entrepreneur about how they made it through the tough times, and more often than not, it comes down to finding the right resource, mentor or expert to think through solving the problem and sidestepping future pitfalls. This is the beauty of a supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem, and we are getting closer to having our own in Albuquerque, not only on the ground and face to face, but accessible from anywhere at anytime.

These resources can help connect you into the resources, mentors and information you need to succeed.

FOR PROVIDERS

While our economic challenges may be tough, we are tougher.


Albuquerque is rich in services ready to help our startups and small businesses—and City Alive is implementing smart, connected and inclusive approaches that strengthen the support around entrepreneurs to increase their success, right here at home.

We know that together we can think smarter, remove barriers and create a better environment where entrepreneurs build businesses and succeed. As a service provider, you are a key part of that environment of success.

Our collective impact approach is not new to Albuquerque. Albuquerque already has a variety of these efforts, such as Mission Graduate and Albuquerque Heading Home that are using this strategy of partnership, aligned contributions and shared vision to address challenges that are too complex for one organization to solve alone.

Below are a few resources to support, align and connect your work:
