Who’s in?

(215 and counting)

The founders of OpenSourceMT, as described below, are active participants in Montana’s technology industry. We believe in limited government involvement in business; however, we recognize that government policies have significant bearing on the future of our businesses and our quality of life.

Specifically, we believe that government actions and policies are key to creating a positive environment for Montana businesses.  In particular we believe four principles highlighted on our Home Page are essential to the health of the technology industry as well as all Montana businesses.
