Our network of economic development partners across the state is key to the success of many Montana businesses. With offices in counties and cities that represent Montana’s diverse demographics, these economic development professionals can answer your specific questions about what their area has to offer - and many of them have programs uniquely tailored to meet your needs. Contact Governor's Office of Economic Development directly with any questions about our economic development partners.

To better connect you with the right partners, we have divided the state into 11 Economic Development Regions. Each region has a dedicated page which contains regional and local partners, quick facts about the region, and the latest news and events.  Please click on the Economic Development Region below to find out more.
