NEW MEXICO JOINS FOUR OTHER STATES IN NAMING TELTECH TO PROVIDE TECHNOLOGY ACCESS SERVICES

 NEW MEXICO JOINS FOUR OTHER STATES IN NAMING TELTECH TO PROVIDE
 TECHNOLOGY ACCESS SERVICES
 MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Teltech Resource Network today announced the company has been named to provide the service delivery for New Mexico's new technology access program. New Mexico is the latest state to name Teltech. The company has also been hired to implement similar programs in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Maryland and Oregon.
 This effort is designed to promote the survival and growth of entrepreneurial businesses by providing them with needed technical and business assistance.
 "An important aspect of the New Mexico program is that it will help level the competitive playing field between small and large, as well as rural and urban companies," said Dick Anderson, Teltech president. "Our experience indicates this resource can be expected to have a significant impact on such key areas of economic development as creating new jobs and reducing small business mortality rates."
 The idea for the New Mexico program came from a 1991 federal initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Small Business Administration (SBA). Matching grants were offered to help selected states fund small company access to on-line technical and business information services and an established network of technical experts.
 Although New Mexico's application for the federal funding was rejected, the state decided to proceed on its own. Its program is modeled after an award-winning model called Minnesota Project Outreach, for which Teltech provides the service delivery. Project Outreach helped nearly 1,000 entrepreneurial businesses in 1991. It consists of 70 public access sites around the state where small business operators can simply walk in to tap the various available resources. In addition, 400 companies were selected to receive direct access.
 Teltech offers two key services: an expert network where clients speak directly via telephone with leading specialists in more than 3,400 technical areas; and a literature searching service whereby a Teltech searcher accesses the world's major databases while the client is in simultaneous telephone and computer screen contact.
 Teltech Resource Network is headquartered in Minneapolis. Among its clients are scientists and engineers at more than half of the Fortune 500 companies. Teltech was recently named to the Inc. 500 list of the country's fastest growing private companies.
