One of the greatest challenges facing small businesses across Montana is a lack of capital. If a business can’t find investors among their friends in Montana, it often doesn’t get off the ground. Unfortunately, this is how many of Montana’s small businesses die before they are even born. We need to implement programs that encourage outside investment and provide resources for Montana’s small businesses to access venture capital. Additionally, the State needs to play a role in ensuring the success of these businesses to encourage a continued investment. Infrastructure must be improved to lessen the travel and shipping costs incurred by those doing business in Montana. Together, we can reach out to those investors who are interested in all that Montana has to offer, but find it difficult to justify entering our markets.
