Entrepreneurship — the eternal heartbeat and perpetuating force that fuels the American Dream — has been the igniting spark for growth and innovation in communities across the United States. Rock31, a collaborative entrepreneur and business startup space spearheaded by Big Sky Economic Development, is bringing the entrepreneurial spirit to downtown Billings.

“The Rock31 space is positioned perfectly in the heart of downtown Billings. It’s an opportune location for business startups to share ideas with each other and personally connect with potential clients and investors,” said Andrew Rahn, owner and founder of Montana Land Source and early adopter of Rock31. Read on to find out more about the Rock31 vision and the future of innovation and economic prosperity in Billings.

Turning visions into reality at Rock31

One of the most difficult parts about turning an idea into a profitable business is getting the idea off the ground. For many business startups and innovators, trying to build a successful business from scratch with limited resources and minimal investor potential can be a daunting task. Big Sky Economic Development and the early adopters of Rock31 had this problem in mind when facilitating the creation of the entrepreneurial workspace.

“Being in the tech and land valuation space, I understand firsthand how valuable it is to be around other like-minded people that ‘get it’ in regard to having a vision for their business venture,” said Rahn. “Rock31 is providing business owners a central space to have access to resources that most business startups wouldn’t typically have access to.”

With access to a coworking space with other local business startups, on-site business growth and development training, business counseling and mentorship, as well as a state-of-the-art multimedia room, Rock31 is a pivotal value-add for any business.

Building a thriving community and brighter future

The intricate dynamic of Rock31 is much more than simply providing workspace for business owners. The focal point of this initiative is centered around bringing new, innovative, and forward-thinking business ventures into Billings and building out a space where local thought leaders can come together.

“It’s the intangibles of Rock31 that are most important. The space creates a culture of collaboration and sharing of ideas between people who have similar ambitions,” Rahn said. Big Sky Economic Development and the early adopters all believe that the best way to foster a vibrant, bustling economic opportunity profile in Billings is to bring these like minds together and give the visionaries room to grow.

“I have no doubt that we will hear stories of business partners meeting for the first time in this space and business startups partnering with investors that most likely would’ve never met without the existence of Rock31,” said Rahn.

By having a prime location in the epicenter of downtown Billings with street-level office space and prime proximity to potential clients and investors, Rock31 has set up its adopters and the Billings community for success and a confident look to the future.
