New Mexico Supports R&D Through Science and Technology Grants

Five New Mexico companies are set to receive $25,000 each from the New Mexico Economic Development Department through their Science & Technology Business Start Up Grants. These companies were selected based on their high growth potential.

These grants are available for New Mexico-based companies that meet certain criteria including being for profit and employing fewer than 50 employees. They must be science and technology based in the areas of aerospace, biosciences, cybersecurity, intelligent manufacturing, and sustainable and green energy.

The five companies selected in this round were selected based on the provision of a unique product or service, a clear business proposition, and the demonstration of a scalable product or model that could provide an economic benefit to the state. These companies include:

  1. Avisa Diagnostics USA
    • Treatment of lung infections with rapid diagnostics to guide better clinical outcomes
  2. EVUS
    • Development of technology in support of water-based heating market and sustainable water treatment processes
