The Role of Investor-Membership in Economic Development
Montana West is providing more resources to new and growing businesses than ever before. Many businesses in our Valley simply would not exist without our assistance in the critical states of launch and expansion. As a privately governed, nonprofit organization, we depend on investor-member contributions for roughly 20 percent of our operational budget. This crucial funding component comes from business leaders in the Flathead Valley who know that investing in the economic health of the community helps ensure economic success for all.
A healthy and growing economy requires concerted efforts from community and business leaders willing to invest their time, expertise and resources. Their support breathes vitality into Flathead County by ensuring a variety of businesses receive the economic and technical support they need to start, expand and thrive.
“Our firm has chosen to contribute to and actively participate in Montana West because of its strong Valley-wide representation dedicated to grow the economy of our area. The assistance provided to local businesses, startups, and those interested in relocation create jobs that help our area grow.”
