How To Apply For Funding

For more than 20 years, New Mexico Angels has been investing in New Mexico-based high growth potential early stage and seed companies.

NMA evaluates companies that apply with us or have applied with one of our co-investment partners based on a Gust application. This application contains all the tools you need to tell us about the tremendous potential of your company.

Before you begin your application review the criteria we use to select companies for investment. You must have a complete pitch deck (see pitch deck content guidelines) and a 3-5 minute pitch video to add to your Gust application to apply.


Click Submit to begin the application process.

You will be redirected to our Gust page where you will need to register for an account if you do not already have one. After you login, you will be asked to answer some questions about your business. You will also have the opportunity to upload documents like your business plan and presentation.
It takes quite a bit of time and thought to successfully build a company and we are looking for teams that have invested both when we review your application. Since many other Angel groups and investors use Gust, the time you invest in your application can be used to apply for funding with other organizations in addition to NM Angels.
If the application is incomplete, it will be rejected, and the assessment process will end.
If you have questions before submitting your application, please contact us.


Initial Business Assessment (IBA)
We review and select companies for investment based on your Gust application and these criteria.
NMA has a screening committee that meets once a month to consider new applications, review applications that have been assessed based on the content of the Gust application, and select companies for a more detailed review with you and your team. We receive many applications each month and aim to complete the initial assessment and provide written feedback in 30 days. This feedback will indicate what the next steps are for your company.


Next steps
If you are selected during the initial business assessment, we schedule you to pitch to investors who have reviewed the assessment and expressed interest in your company.
