Alter Enterprise is committed to growing tech business in their hometown of Missoula, MT.

I know it is going to be hard work but I am confident it will be worth it. This program is already bringing about a positive influence on our growth strategies.” Ryan Alter, owner of Alter Enterprise LLC.
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses launched in 2009 as an investment to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital and business support services. The program is based on the broadly held view of leading experts that greater access to this combination of education, capital and support services best addresses barriers to growth.
