2020 Tech Startup Accelerator - Regional Showcase
5:00 PM
Garlington Lohn & Robinson
Montana's rising tech companies pitch their plans to a panel of judges for the chance to gain exposure, expert mentoring, and investment.

Tech start-ups from across Montana have the chance to gain attention from potential investors and gain access to free training and mentoring from the state’s leading experts in tech and entrepreneurship at the 3 rd annual Regional Business Pitch Competition. Hosted by Early Stage Montana, the competition takes place April 2 from 5-8 p.m. in Missoula.

This event is the last of three competitions in Billings, Bozeman, and Missoula at which tech-leveraged start-ups compete for interest from potential investors and for the chance to move on to a final, statewide competition in November where they’ll compete for cash. The most promising companies from these three regional competitions will attend a week-long in-depth training and mentorship program, the HyperAccelerator, where they work intensely with over 50 mentors from across Montana to improve their business plans, strategies, and skills.

Early Stage Montana is a nonprofit that provides free training and mentoring to tech-leveraged start-ups with a mission to accelerate the growth of tech-leveraged businesses by connecting them to the mentoring and financing needed to avoid mistakes, create jobs, and succeed. It is the only Montana nonprofit providing high-caliber, intensive training and mentorship to Montana tech start-ups.

In 2019, over 50 companies entered the regional showcases. Over 30 companies competed the year before. More than 20 companies went on to the HyperAccelerator and have since created nearly 30 new high-tech jobs and attracted over $9 million in investment.

The Regional Business Pitch Competition, HyperAccelerator, and the Statewide Showcase are completely free to participating companies. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend the regional showcases to learn about and celebrate the remarkable innovation of Montana entrepreneurs.
