HELENA — Governor Bullock announced the annual Innovate Montana Symposium will be an online business platform this year.

In a press release, the Governor's Office says 2020 marks four years since the symposium began. It was originally slated for September 24th in Missoula, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will now be virtual as an innovation hub.

The virtual platform seeks to provide assistance and a dynamic learning environment to help businesses cope with the challenges of the pandemic.

Some example video sessions will include things like "How to Move Your Brick and Mortar Online" or "Conserving Cash."

The Governor's Office of Economic Development hopes to launch the free Innovation Hub in October 2020.
