Missoula, Bozeman to spearhead new Montana ‘Tech Hub’

Montana Senater Jon Tester

Montana Senator Jon Tester led a panel discussion in Missoula earlier this year where participants began planning their approach to compete for one of the 30 new Tech Hubs. The effort panned out and Montana was selected from a field of 200 applicants.

Montana’s recognition as a Tech Hub by the Economic Development Administration this month will bring new investment and jobs to the state, and could land millions of additional dollars in federal funding, backers said.

The Headwaters Regional Technology and Innovation Hub represents a consortium of Montana stakeholders led by Accelerate Montana at the University of Montana. The group organized, lobbied and secured Tech Hub recognition last week from the EDA, a branch of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
