Create.Sell.Bank! Community Online Course – Start or Expand your Business

January 18 @ 8:00 am - March 27 @ 5:00 pm

The University of New Mexico’s Innovation Academy and UNM Rainforest Innovations (fka STC.UNM) are offering a special course to help New Mexico businesses at this critical time for our state’s economic recovery. This is made possible thru a grant from the Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration called the NM EDA Rainforest University Center.

During this time of economic change, many New Mexico small businesses need to build or increase their online presence to offset a decline in retail in-person traffic, as well as grow businesses beyond New Mexico borders. The UNM online course for the community will teach businesses e-commerce techniques including developing storefronts and online presence.
