Welcome to the Santa Fe Business Incubator (SFBI)

A not-for-profit economic development organization and an entrepreneurial leader in our community.

Since 1997, SFBI is home to entrepreneurs of all kinds who have access to the essential ingredients for success: a board-based network of partners and advisers, educational programs, and a multi-purpose work facility featuring a productive environment that encourages collaboration and risk-taking. Incubated companies are four times more likely to survive the early years when risks are highest. Join us - because start-ups need a fertile place to take root before taking on the world.

SFBI’s programs can support your business by coaching you to plan, manage, finance, promote, market, and evaluate.

A network of people and resources is perhaps the most important element or “secret sauce” to Business Incubation.

At the Santa Fe Business Incubator a supportive environment starts with a place.

Stay connected with us! There are a number of different media where we share important information about our programs, clients and events.

“In 2009 I started attending public workshops at the Incubator. I applied soon after and was thrilled to be accepted as a client. Since moving into the Incubator Nurses with Heart Home Care has used the community connections, the advisors, and the programs to grow into the business we are today. None of that growth would have been possible without the Incubator.”


- Carolyn Moore, CEO, Nurses with Heart Home Care

How can a business become a client of the Incubator?

There are four ways that a business can participate as a client of the Incubator, depending on its needs:

Resident Client

Resident Clients rent office, lab, warehouse and/or production space in the Incubator’s 30,000 square foot facility, have use of shared resources, meeting rooms, and participate in its programs and events.

Affiliate Client

Affiliate Clients do not house their business with the Incubator facility but are entitled to use of its meeting rooms, shared resources, and participate in its programs and events.


The SFBI offers flexible Co-Working space to fit the needs of solopreneurs, freelancers, or professionals in Santa Fe on business a few times a month.


RUNWAY is a pre-incubation program for individuals who have a great idea but need help forming it into a viable business model.
