56Strong - Prospera


About the Program

56Strong connects women entrepreneurs and business leaders from all of Montana's 56 counties through a one-on-one mentorship program. This is a six-month program designed to:

  • Bridge the gap between the urban and rural divide
  • Support female entrepreneurs looking to grow their businesses
  • Increase female businesses across the state of Montana
  • Help women gain access to capital
  • Support and build resiliency among female professionals

Selection Process


Everyone must apply to participate. We are accepting applications until all eligible mentee and mentor spaces are filled.


Every applicant (mentee and mentor) is interviewed to gain an understanding of challenges, strengths, and needs. Interviews will be 30 minutes on Zoom and are imperative to the matching process.


After the interviews are completed there is a matching process to create the partnerships. The matches are formed from the current challenges/needs of the mentees and the strengths/history of the mentors.

Applications for 56Strong are currently closed. Please fill out the form for future communications for future cohorts.

For any questions, please email Prospera at info@prosperamt.org
