'Invest in Montana' coming to Havre


Havre Daily News staff

The official who regulates securities in the state of Montana is sending staff to Havre on the “Invest in Montana Tour.”

State Auditor Matt Rosendale announced that he and other securities staff have launched the statewide tour to encourage business investment and highlight capital formation opportunities throughout Montana.

The tour will stop in Havre March 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Havre Inn and Suites, with lunch provided.

Rosendale said the tour will educate Montanans on the ways Montana’s securities laws allow companies, organizations and local government to raise funds from investors. The statewide tour comes as more Montanans and businesses are seeing the benefits of federal tax reform and emphasizing investments in employees and equipment.

“The purpose of the capital formation presentations and roundtable discussions is to create a dialogue with business leaders, economic development organizations, business incubators, and community leaders to promote investment in Montana and support businesses as they start up and/or grow their existing operations,” Rosendale said in a press release. “We have fantastic people, great businesses, and an unparalleled entrepreneurial spirit in Montana. By raising capital, Montanans can leverage those assets to start new businesses, expand existing ones, and create more good-paying jobs in every community under the Big Sky.”

Invest in Montana will discuss the basics of capital formation, sources of capital, types of securities, how to properly offer and sell securities under Montana law, investor disclosure requirements, exemptions to registering securities, crowdfunding, and other items.

CSI’s Capital Formation webpage at http://csimt.gov/securities/capital-formation has more information for Montana businesses and individuals interested in capital formation.

People are asked to register online for the Havre stop at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/invest-in-montana-havre-tickets-43367241587 so the planners can get a rough head count. There is no cost to attend and the event is open to the public, but seating is limited.
