Community Impact Investing - Prospera

Community Impact Investing
Innovative Financing for Business & Community Projects in Montana

Some business and community projects have trouble getting financing. This new Prospera event will explore the success stories and build new capacity around creative financing tools being used in Montana to strengthen local economies.

The workshop will gather thought-leaders, business owners, and funders who have experience in financing solutions for local projects. The event will include a round of ignite-talk presentations from guest speakers and the afternoon will focus on small group, round table discussions. The goal is to establish common understanding and quickly move into meaningful discussions for capacity building.

Come play an active role in sharing your expertise and practice for how Montana can grow and create new tools for financing business and community projects for your community.
