From the oil boom in the east, to manufacturing and construction growth across the urbanized west, Montana’s private sector is thriving as businesses rush to meet the demands of a growing population. Montana is ranked #1 for entrepreneurship and overall business startup activity (Kauffman Foundation). Montana is on the upswing for technology, healthcare, and energy growth.
