The Hellgate Venture Network is a community of Missoula entrepreneurs that meets monthly. It was founded in March of 2009 by Paul Gladen and Dawn McGee. Being a leader of a business is often isolating, so Paul and Dawn decided to offer peer to peer mentorship and support by hosting a gathering once a month. People who are not from Missoula often ask about the name – the steep gorge cut by the Clark Fork to the east of the Missoula Valley is known as Hellgate Canyon.
Our format is simple; we host monthly events. 30 minutes of networking. 10 minutes of learning what another company is up to and some Q&A. After that back to hanging out and having an engaging conversation. While we don’t know half of what people contribute and take from our community we have heard of jobs being found, businesses launched, relationships started and other forms of collaboration. Come join us and bring a friend. There is no fee, no membership due, no advertising. Just sign up below so you get notice of our upcoming meetings. We look forward to seeing you.
