PeerSpectives® is a unique roundtable system designed especially for leaders of second-stage companies. PeerSpectives® enhances leadership abilities and improves decision-making.

Where We Live

Welcome to Northwest Montana


Columbia Falls





Montana is the Treasure State, a nod to mountains that once produced fortunes in gold and silver. Hundreds of years later, the name still fits, especially here in the northwest corner. Business owners and entrepreneurs flock to the Flathead, one of Montana’s fastest-growing counties. We have state-of-the-art hospitals and schools, a vibrant arts scene, and a diverse economy, not to mention a natural playground that includes Whitefish Mountain Resort and Glacier National Park.
