Southwest Business Development Consultants, LLC is an Albuquerque, New Mexico based American Indian firm established in 1999 with a vision of providing comprehensive business, community and economic development services to American Indian & Minority-owned businesses, tribal enterprises, tribal organizations, local, state, and federal government agencies and private sector firms. SWBDC utilizes a “One Stop Shop” value added collaboration of professional consultants, architects, engineers, researchers, planners, construction firms and other specialty firms. In addition SWBDC possesses access to local, regional, and national government, non-profit, and private financial institutions and other diverse business resources.
On September 1, 2019 SWBDC was selected and awarded a two-year grant from the Minority Business Development Agency (U.S. Commerce Department) to support business development in Indian Country and minority communities throughout the Southwest. The Four Winds Diversified (FWD) Project “Community & Business Training, Economic Development, Partnerships, Job Creation……Rural American Indian Communities Moving Forward" provides access to unlimited opportunities, access to capital, and access to resources & new markets for American Indian, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian and Minority-owned businesses located in the Southwest rural reservation lands and local community areas.
The U.S. Department of Commerce, Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) announced grant awards totaling $3.6 million to support business development in Indian Country. The investment represents an historic level of 17% of all the MBDA grants awarded this year.
The diversity among the projects shows strong promise for Native-owned businesses to achieve entrepreneurial growth and global competitiveness. They encompass a range of strategies to address identified needs in Indian Country, including but not limited to access to capital, incubator/accelerators, federal program coaching, public-private partnerships, and broadband. Collectively, the objective is to ensure Tribal entrepreneurs and Tribal businesses are better connected to business opportunities and trained in entrepreneurship, leading to a stronger foundation for economic growth.
“These grants affirm MBDA’s long-standing commitment to economic development in Indian Country,” said Henry Childs II, MBDA National Director. “There are many examples of economic success in Indian Country. This includes areas such as energy, tourism, and gaming. Indigenous communities are a vital part of regional economies but are often disconnected from efforts to promote regional and rural development. This disconnect contributes to disparities in socio-economic outcomes experienced in Indian Country. MBDA’s investments will help link Indigenous communities with regional and rural development efforts.” stated Childs.
