Partner spotlight: Innovate Montana to host 2019 Symposium in Butte

Butte, Montana holds a hub of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit and is an ideal location for Innovate Montana’s 2019 symposium. Innovate Montana is a program from the Montana Governor’s Office of Economic Development to help tech companies start, grow, or move to Montana. From pairing entrepreneurs with mentors to planning advice, and even being a beacon of encouragement for businesses who decide to relocate to Montana, this organization is an amazing resource. 

The Innovate Montana Symposium 2019 will take place this October 14-16 at the Copper King Hotel and Convention Center and we encourage you to go! This is their “flagship” event for investors, advisors, and entrepreneurs to connect. The focus of the symposium is growth through investment, new markets, and more. Speakers and panelists will talk about “actionable steps” for creating a sustainable company culture. Coming from exciting and impressive backgrounds are the three keynote speakers: Fritz Lanman, CEO of ClassPass, Padded Murphy, VP of Global Marketing at WeWork, and Deano Roberts, VP of Global Workplace at Slack.

Innovate Montana invites you to two days of “incredible speakers, captivating buzz sessions, and opportunities to network across all sectors.” Fritz will kickstart the event with an inspiring discussion on removing barriers to growth and then have a chat with Governor Steve Bullock. Day two of the symposium will be led by Padden and Deano sharing insight of their trades and the “entrepreneurial ecosystem in Montana.” To keep things fun and exciting there will be a giveaway modeled by the infamous TV show, Shark Tank. A panel of “sharks” will judge 5 lucky businesses willing to get on stage and sell their idea. Winner will take home $10,000 worth of prizes. Anyone can apply for free before September 20th.
