|January 28, 2016||View for printing|
Those who have watched or experienced Liz Marchi's commitment to provide funding for Montana entrepreneurs and startups for a decade might suggest that the term "angel investor" was coined to describe her.
After all, it's been more than a decade since Marchi who had arrived in Montana with three daughters and her then husband and settled in the Flathead Valley, to decide to create the state's first angel fund, Frontier Angel Fund I http://www.frontierangels.com/ . Although it was three years before the fund closed in 2006 at $1.7 million, she had raised $300,000 more than she had hoped.
"The entire conversation and perception needs to move about rural America, what is going on here and its role in making our economy and our country work better," she said, expressing the principle that has guided her commitment to Montana entrepreneurs.

Liz is a remarkable woman. I know from personal experience that 'getting things done' is rural areas (i.e. Montana) can be challenging. But clearly, for many years now, she has risen to the challenge and exceeded it. GO LIZ!
