TLAND TECH Montana’s high-tech companies pay almost double the state average but report hiring challenges

Montana’s high-tech businesses want to demonstrate that they can play a meaningful role in growing the state’s economy by offering higher wages than other businesses in the state, adding more jobs, and generating quick revenue growth.

That’s according to a report out today from the Montana High Tech Business Alliance. The organization, with assistance from the University of Montana Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER), has surveyed high-tech businesses in Montana for the past four years in order to measure the community’s progress and inform the rest of the state about the status of these companies.
