Early Stage MT – Accelerating Montana’s Tech Sector Growth
We provide young tech companies with training, mentorship, and financing options to accelerate their growth, helping entrepreneurs avoid the common mistakes that tend to slow them down, while connecting them to networks of customers, partners, and advisors who can help them grow, faster.
As Montanans, we’re blessed with the natural resources that have allowed us to build a strong economy on extraction industries, agriculture, and tourism. But we’re experiencing a few formidable challenges. Extraction and agriculture have globalized, driving down profits and shedding jobs in the process. And growth in tourism, while great for the local hotels, restaurants, etc., tends to create jobs that pay below-average or seasonal wages.
