The Governor’s Office of Economic Development has had several big wins in the last year. Notably, ClassPass has expanded beyond what anyone anticipated and now employs over 125 people in Missoula. Many other new companies relocated to Montana recently as well. Some of the most notable include 4Cast, an Israeli tech firm, Birddog Innovations, a consulting company, Kudos, a social media app, Free Agent Software, a customer relationship management software, and The MeatEater, a video production and lifestyle brand. Universally, the reasons for these companies moving to Montana has been the state’s excellent workforce, affordable cost of doing business, and outstanding quality of life.
