Prospera Business Network is the lead non-profit organization advancing and supporting community-centered economic development in southwest Montana. Our focus is helping people start and grow their business – in turn strengthening our region’s economy and communities.

Prospera is formally designated as Gallatin and Park County’s Certified Regional Development Corporation (CRDC) from the Montana Department of Commerce, and is the official home of the Montana Women’s Business Center (WBC), a program of the U.S. Small Business Administration.


Prospera's mission is to advance and inspire diverse economies and communities in southwest Montana.


We believe economic and community development are connected, and that supporting people who are starting or growing their Montana business is one of the best ways we can support our local communities. We believe that a strong and diverse business environment supports a healthy and vibrant community – and its quality of life. As Montanans we want to keep our connection to this beautiful place we call home.

Our vision is to serve as a catalyst for business and community success and for Prospera to be the regional leader that inspires and enables positive and healthy economic and community development.
