Indian Pueblo Cultural Center Maker Space & Incubator

There is no place in New Mexico that serves Native Entrepreneurs and no makerspace dedicated to artisans and small food producers. We believe that in order to help Native entrepreneurs grow the creative economy, we needed to provide much-needed support. The makerspace will be 23,000 sq. ft and will be located on the IPCC campus, with a plan to break ground in May of this year and complete the space by June 2021.

We will also be serving non-Native entrepreneurs in the artisan and small food production areas as we believe it is important to have creative collisions between Native and non-Native artisans. We’ve already begun programming with fiscal literacy training etc. with many partners who are service-providers helping us achieve our mission. It is our intent to cooperate and collaborate for a much greater collective impact.

We will have established artisans mentor those in the program. If someone is interested in mentoring, they can certainly volunteer. We are always open to funders who wish to donate time, services, or funding to help us equip the space and support the entrepreneurs.

Solve – Indigenous Communities Fellowship Program

Solve is an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a mission to solve world challenges. Solve was founded in 2015 and is a marketplace for social impact innovation.

Solve’s Indigenous Communities Fellowship Program, started in 2017, employs Solve’s open innovation approach to identify, spotlight, and support innovative native-led solutions throughout the U.S. Selected Fellows receive grant support and participate in the flagship Solve at MIT event as well as an annual regional summit in Indian Country. During the 9-month Fellowship program, Solve identifies key needs and brokers relevant follow-on support opportunities for Fellows, including mentorship, media highlights, and tailored introductions to potential partners. Solve is looking forward to the launch of the 2020 Indigenous Communities Fellowship in March. More details here
