Albuquerque, NM; June 20, 2008 – This year’s entrepreneurial award winners are all from outside of Albuquerque, a clear indication of the vibrancy of rural businesses in New Mexico. From Silver City to Santa Fe, these business owners have proven that a well-designed and executed business plan can succeed outside of major metropolitan areas.

PNM and WESST started the Entrepreneurial Leadership Awards Program in 2000 to acknowledge entrepreneurial excellence in New Mexico. The program is designed to honor some of our state’s most successful women and minority-owned small and micro businesses who are frequently excluded from traditional awards programs.
