NM APEX Accelerator Advisors
NM APEX Accelerator Advisors have a wealth of experience in both procurement and business management. In their work with small business owners, they draw on their experience in the areas of accounting, marketing, bid/proposal, pricing, and contract administration. NM APEX Accelerator Advisors assist business owners to cover all aspects of procurement including registration with government entities, certification programs (both Federal and State), identifying appropriate agencies to target, developing marketing strategies, assistance in proposal development, and the administrative aspects once a contract is awarded. The Advisors utilize the fact that they do come from different backgrounds, often consulting with each other to make sure clients receive the type of help they need at each stage.
To be a NM APEX Accelerator client:
To become a NM APEX Accelerator client, you must have an existing business (if you do not yet, we can provide you with additional resources) and be interested in pursuing contracts with governmental entities. That's it for the requirements, but the preference is that you have a solid business with a history of happy customers, that you have business systems in place such as accounting and payroll, and that you are financially viable and have the cash flow for any contract you are awarded as a result of our assistance. We do not assist with basic business training, business planning, business capitalization, or start up activities, but our network partner, the New Mexico Small Business Development Center (SBDC), can assist in these areas. Their website can be found here: https://www.nmsbdc.org.
We believe that with the right tools, expertise, and experience - your business can succeed. The NM APEX Accelerator provides you free access to government contracting experts. We emphasize education of business owners to ensure they are "contract ready" as vendors to the Federal, State, and Local Governments as well as Tribal Nations. We help New Mexico businesses throughout the lifecycle of government contracting - starting with helping you assess if the governmental market makes sense for your business. Once you are a NM APEX Accelerator client, a wide variety of resources are available to obtain the proper registrations and certifications; perform market research; develop a marketing plan; respond to requests for proposals; and have support throughout contract administration including compliant accounting practices.
