What industry is most likely to help New Mexico truly recover from the recession(finally)?
There’s no magic bullet for our state’s economy, but there are plenty of exciting possibilities of industries with growth prospects that could help New Mexico grow jobs and wealth.
That’s why we’re shining the spotlight on some of those industries with our Grow New Mexico: Emerging Economy Outlook event April 20. Five presenters will give brief talks on why certain industries could be growth engines for New Mexico —and the challenges those industries face — and will respond to questions from the audience.
Presenters and the industries they’re discussing:
— Tammara Anderton, director of business development, Spaceport America – commercial space industry
— Mark Lautman, principal, Lautman Economic Architecture – solopreneurs
— Nico Ortiz, owner, Turtle Mountain Brewing Co. — breweries
— Stuart A. Rose, founder, The Bioscience Center – biotechnology
— Rachael Speegle, director of operations, Verdes Foundation – medical marijuana
These industries boast financial heft already and have prospects for more.
