In the past few years, Helena has been buzzing with all the new business activity happening in the area. From new breweries, wine bars, and creative spaces to entertain and inspire us, to service and technology startups with innovative ways to get the job done, Helena has become a place to create, grow, and support small business.
Dating back to Helena’s roots as a gold mining boomtown, Last Chance Gulch has a long history of producing successful entrepreneurs. And though Helena may have a reputation as a government center, we also have a strong,  ourishing business community.
To further fuel this notion, The Montana Business Assistance Connection (MBAC) created a program to support startup businesses in the Helena area. The Accelerated Startups program is designed to provide resources, accountability, and mentorships to new startups. It is a free, yet extremely competitive program, led by Brian Obert at MBAC and supported by the partnership of EDGE Marketing + Design.
