What is Albuquerque proposing?

The city of Albuquerque is focused on improving the business climate for local immigrant entrepreneurs through more effective public engagement.

Albuquerque is working to ensure that interactions with local immigrant entrepreneurs shape policies intended to benefit them. Albuquerque's video captures the spirit of ‘deep-dive’ meetings that Mayor Richard Berry has conducted as a part of the city's work to date. Support from the City Accelerator would help Albuquerque refine its approach, explore policy solutions that come out of it and help it adapt the practice for entrepreneurs of different backgrounds.


Public response is one of several criteria being used by the City Accelerator to select cohort cities. The number of ratings or comments by themselves do not determine final status or selection.
