In the world of business, Montana is a conversation starter, a source of great stories and a destination. Our wild and beautiful places inspire, challenge and ground us. They foster loyalty and serve as a rallying point for strong communities. These places are inextricably linked to the long term health and growth of our economy - and of ourselves.

While we send people fishing and traveling all over the world to more than 155 different lodges and locations in 25 different countries, we base our business and our operations in the heart of Montana. This state is without a doubt the epicenter of fly-fishing and outdoor recreation, and basing our headquarters in Bozeman has allowed us to hire, recruit and attract the very best employees and team members. Our business is stronger and more profitable (contributing more jobs and tax dollars to the local and state economies) because of the outdoor opportunities, lifestyle and access that Montana offers.

Greenstone Growth Partners' business is built entirely upon the quality and capabilities of its people and its clients. By basing ourselves in a location that balances quality of life issues with entrepreneurial drive, we have been able to find the "sweet spot" for a knowledge-based business that is designed to positively impact its local and regional community. We expect that our ability to grow our client base and our own team will continue to rely on this balance, which means that we have a direct economic motivation for maintaining the high quality of life of Bozeman and Montana.
