Student entrepreneurs working with the Blackstone LaunchPad at the University Montana will benefit from a new partnership between the Blackstone Charitable Foundation and Techstars, a global startup accelerator and entrepreneurial network. The new effort was announced March 7 at SXSW EDU in Austin, Texas.

As one of just 20 Blackstone LaunchPads across the globe, the Blackstone LaunchPad at the University of Montana boasts over 1,000 student and community entrepreneurs and their mentors in its membership. The organization helps students, faculty, staff and alumni explore entrepreneurship as a viable career path.

UM President Seth Bodnar said UM's ability to leverage Techstars' proven frameworks will create a competitive advantage for Montana's entrepreneurs on a global level.
