Debut event: Micro-fund pitch competition tests, rewards Missoula startups

February 12, 2018View for printing

Hosted by the Missoula Economic Partnership, Blackstone LaunchPad, and Hellgate and Goodwork venture networks, the debut event cut another notch in Missoula's startup scene. The 50 participants, many entrepreneurs in their own right, paid $5 to cast a vote for the evening's best pitch.

"A couple of years ago in Detroit, they created this micro funding initiative to create community buy in for nonprofit projects and entrepreneurship," said Molly Cook, a graduate fellow with MEP who brought the concept to Missoula. "It spread to city's throughout the U.S., and we decided Missoula should get in on the game. This is our first time."
