Center for Entrepreneurship for the New West is Starting to Attract Attention
Senator Burns was recently a guest at the center, TechRanch and our other partner in this venture, TechLink. Burns was given a tour of facility and met the COB students currently stationed at the center. Burns also attended a presentation highlighting three of the TechRanch s clients and the projects and services they are working on. The afternoon was set up to give Burns a better understanding of the strengths the center will have for Montana and how the partnerships will enhance the growth of start-up businesses and the benefits to the economy.
In an article in the Bozeman Chronicle about the senator s visit to the center, COB dean Rich Semenik was quoted to say, "Students of Montana have a great entrepreneurial spirit and have a great desire to stay in Montana."
Currently, COB students from the center are working for a plant scientist, a software developer, a language translation firm and a chemist working on plant therapies. This fall, COB will add a new minor in Entrepreneurship for all students of MSU.
Be watching for great things to happen at The Center for Entrepreneurship for the New West!
