Early Stage Montana seeks tech startups to apply for mentorship, grant program

A Montana-based organization is helping jump start high-tech startups through a business pitch competition held in Missoula, Billings and Bozeman to encourage tech industry development and job opportunities.

Early Stage Montana, a nonprofit coalition, is looking for entrepreneurs who need help planning and growing their businesses.

Participants will pitch their business plans and products to a panel of judges for a chance to win a free five-day accelerator training program and compete for a $50,000 investment during the annual Statewide Showcase scheduled for November 2019.
