Imagination, Resourcefulness and Grit | Entrepreneurship in Montana

Rock31, powered by the Montana SBDC and Big Sky Economic Development announced today that they will release the film “Edge of the Plains” in select theaters across Montana this fall. Tickets are available at: edgeoftheplains.com
The documentary showcases the inspiring stories of entrepreneurs across central and southeast Montana that turned their pipe dreams into a reality. Audience members will also experience an inside look into the unique processes each company uses to create and manufacture the products they sell. Businesses featured in the film include: Red Oxx, Swanky Roots, EarlyWood, Crazy Creek Products, Toscano Machine, Tumblewood Teas, Cream of the West, and Ben Pease Visions.
“Entrepreneurs are a special breed. They build thriving businesses from nothing more than an idea. They start with zero credibility on kitchen tables and use their faith, passion, and confidence to convince people to buy from them. They hear “No” constantly, they fail, start over, then fail and start over again. They’re the backbone of the U.S. and Montana. This documentary is a rare glimpse into the lives of select entrepreneurs throughout central and southeast Montana.” -Kevin Scharfe, Director of Rock31
