Kriseman in Albuquerque for entrepreneurial conference



Mayor Rick Kriseman is attending a conference in New Mexico on how cities can foster entrepreneurship.

The trip, paid for by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, which organized the conference, will continue until Thursday.

The conference will address the role of private charities in encouraging start-ups, how "community assets" can spur entrepreneurial growth and how to track entrepreneurial activity, among other topics.

In a statement, Kriseman said he was pleased to join mayors from around the country and sharing ideas.

"Nourishing entrepreneurship and small businesses has been the focus of my administration," Kriseman said in a statement Tuesday.
