If you need a crash course in launching a business, Startup Weekend Butte debuts this spring.
The March 27 through 29 event will be a catalyst for the Butte and southwest Montana entrepreneurial community, said Pam Haxby-Cote, regional director of the Blackstone LaunchPad Montana program.
She said the event is a chance for small-business types to start off right.
“Southwest Montana folks are entrepreneurial by nature,” said Haxby-Cote. “Startup Weekend Butte provides our local entrepreneurs with the opportunity to network, pitch their ideas, build teams, ideate and curate, and launch a business -- all in 54 hours.”
