Happy New Year from Sweetgrass Development!
We hope you and yours had a fantastic holiday season. We certainly did, and we are ready to enter another fantastic year supporting economic development in north-central Montana.
Here are just a few highlights from 2022:
Rewrote our 5-year Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) with the help of 500+ surveys from you, the public! We'll publish this year after it's approved by the EDA.
Became participating lenders with the State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) program!
Held several workshops for digital marketing, QuickBooks, and more!
Welcomed Carrie Taylor, our Business Development/Loan Specialist, and Annette Kniffen, our new Administrative & Marketing Director!
Partnered with the Montana Economic Developers Association on their new website!
Ran registration at the 2022 MEDA Fall conference in Great Falls (Cascade County)!
Based on popular demand, we've already scheduled a QuickBooks workshop with Wendy Weissman for April 2023 (save the date!), and there are even more good things on the way as we continue to work with partners and help make things happen in our part of the Treasure State!
