The Montana Technology Innovation Partnership (MTIP) is a Montana Department of Commerce initiative created to promote technology commercialization in the State of Montana.

MTIP's mission is to build the short-term benefits of technology research and development into the long-term rewards of economic development through commercialization.

MTIP is driven by six objectives:

  • To offer technical assistance for SBIR and STTR proposals

  • To assist businesses in securing seed capital for research and development

  • To provide educational opportunities that target Montana's technology-based businesses and service providers

  • To identify and guide businesses to appropriate local and national resources - technical, business, financial or university

  • To deliver result- oriented services to help technology-based businesses achieve personal commercialization goals

  • To complement, not duplicate, the services of other service providers
