The New Mexico Tech Council (NMTC) is a 501(c)6 non-profit membership association, founded in 2000 with the vision of supporting a burgeoning tech ecosystem in the state of New Mexico.  Today, NMTC remains committed to supporting its members and advancing the local tech industry.

We believe that by bringing together individuals from diverse backgrounds and industries, we can create a stronger, more connected community that is equipped to tackle the challenges of tomorrow.

Our programming, including the New Mexico Tech Summit and the New Mexico Women in Tech Awards, and Peer Groups unite entrepreneurs, businesses, researchers, and tech enthusiasts in collaborative and synergistic partnerships.

We’re proud to play a pivotal role in uniting the diverse local tech community and facilitating the exchange of knowledge and ideas. At NMTC we are focused on propelling the Land of Enchantment into a brighter future.
