Senator Steve Daines recently announced that he will be hosting the first biannual Montana High Tech Jobs Summit in Bozeman this fall.

The Summit, sponsored by Daines, the Bipartisan Policy Center and the Montana Chamber of Commerce, will take place at Montana State University on September 13 and 14 and will feature Safra Catz, Chief Executive Officer of Oracle, among other national tech and business leaders.

“Working at RightNow Technologies, I experienced firsthand the opportunity that technology gives us to grow jobs right here in Montana,” said Senator Daines. “Technology has removed geography as a constraint and has allowed Montana’s high-tech sector to grow. The Montana High Tech Jobs Summit will serve as a great opportunity to capitalize on this growing industry and create even more opportunities for good-paying Montana jobs.”

The Montana High Tech Jobs Summit will serve as a unique opportunity to bring together the nation’s tech leaders in the hub of Montana’s growing technology sector.  The Summit will highlight Montana’s growing role in the nation’s high-tech economy and serve as an opportunity to discuss ways to create more good-paying Montana tech jobs.
