MT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SUMMIT

Senator Max Baucus and Montana Tech hosted the sixth annual Montana Economic Development Summit from September 16 – 18, 2014, with the title “Montana Solutions for Montana Jobs.” Keynote speakers included Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Facebook CFO Sheryl Sandberg, and other top executives from Delta, FedEx, SpaceX, and Tesla Motors. They assembled and collaborated in Butte, which was once one of the largest and wealthiest mining towns west of the Mississippi, dubbed the “richest hill on earth.” Panel discussions included “Venture Capital in Big Sky Country,” “Go Viral: Raise Awareness of Your Company Online,” and “Dive In!: Starting Your Small Business.” We provided professional photography at the panels, informal events, and reception. We took the opportunity, as well, to capture historic Butte.
