56Strong Montana Women's Mentorship Program


56Strong will connect women entrepreneurs and business leaders from all of Montana's 56 counties through a mentorship program.

The program will be facilitated by Chris Carter and Shayna Blaser with the MT Women's Business Center.

The goals of this mentorship program are 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 amongst female professionals

The program will run for six months with a virtual kick-off meeting in January and a virtual conclusion meeting in June. The expectation is that mentors and mentees will meet monthly for about one-hour between February and June. The meeting times and days will be set by the mentors and mentees.

This program is FREE to all participants. The value of the program is approximately $3,000 per mentee.
