Small Business Accelerator Informational Meeting

Do you have an innovative business idea? Are you a small business owner interested in exploring increasing your market outside of Montana?

The University of Montana has a new resource – Accelerate Montana’s Rural Innovation Initiative – to provide ideas to support high growth business across rural Montana. The University of Montana Western and the University of Montana are working together to bring awareness of these opportunities to southwest Montana.

You are invited to attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, November 13 at 3:00 p.m. at the Bank of Commerce second floor conference room at 110 S. Idaho St. in Dillon, Mont.

The University of Montana was recently awarded a $730,000 grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to help cultivate high-growth companies in rural areas through its Center for Rural Economic Development.
