NMSBIC meeting will bring capital providers to Clovis

The New Mexico Small Business Investment Corporation (NMSBIC) will host a community meeting to introduce entrepreneurs interested in beginning a new business and those interested in expanding an existing business to resources that can help their projects succeed.

The panel will be moderated by Russell Cummins, NMSBIC executive director and investment advisor.

NMSBIC meetings, which are always open to the public, are held eight to 10 times per year in Albuquerque, but once a year, NMSBIC hosts a forum to introduce NMSBIC financial program lenders to other communities.

“The NMSBIC board is excited to hold its October meeting in Clovis and to have this opportunity to share information with members of the community in Eastern New Mexico,” said Launa Waller, NMSBIC board member and regulatory manager at Plateau.

The NMSBIC was created in 2001 under the New Mexico Small Business Investment Act to help promote economic development throughout the State of New Mexico. For more information please visit www.nmsbic.org.
