The Montana Associated Technology Roundtable provides information, events, career opportunities and  to the Entrepreneurs, Investors and Professionals of Montana and the Inland Northwest Region while also promoting Montana to the world.

The MATR website is updated on a 24/7 basis and we provide a free compilation newsletter two times a week on Monday and Thursday.    You can view the most recent newsletters and subscribe here

MATR receives visits from over 100 countries.   There is a great deal of interest in Montana and this region from people who don't live here but may want to contribute and participate in our collective economic success.

While we do have Montana in our name because businesses should Choose Montana!, the MATR website  focuses on regional economic activity in the Northwest and "3rd Coast" and is updated continuously so check back for new ideas and success stories in any of  our many focused categories.   We also provide a growing list of Companies and Resources available in the region as well as an active Events calendar.  MATR is also posting career opportunities for a number of states with a focus on Montana, Utah, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Oregon, North and South Dakota and other "3rd Coast" States.   Because of its high search engine rankings, many are directed to looking for information on these states and instead stay on MATR to learn more about Montana.

Posting articles and events is a great way to promote your company or organization.  MATR welcomes articles, events, job openings, resumes, comments and company listings from registered members  (also free)  After you've registered, just go to the upper right hand side of the home page to  "My Account".  Due to the increasing interest and volume of information posted on MATR, we post for those who support the effort and ask those who don't to post their own events, news stories, announcements etc.  Hope you understand. Please see below for rates.
