Prospera works to ensure a pathway to success
for businesses and communities in our region.

Prospera is a local nonprofit that leads the way in building strong businesses, establishing powerful partnerships, and sustaining vibrant communities throughout southwestern Montana. We provide a range of services including confidential business counseling, premier events and trainings, small business loans, grant assistance, and timely economic research. Prospera proudly hosts the statewide Montana Women’s Business Center, a program partially funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Since our founding in 1985, all of Prospera’s offerings have been provided at no-cost or low-cost thanks to the support of our industry-leading members, generous sponsors, and visionary charitable donors
