The Montana World Trade Center, based at the University of Montana, has been assisting private Montana businesses to introduce their products and services around the world. Executive Director of the Montana World Trade Center Arnie Sherman has now formed an organization to bring foreign investment to Montana. The Northern Rockies Regional Center has received approval to offerEB5 immigrant investor visas. The private investment center is in Missoula. Sherman says this is a creative way to bring jobs to the state.

The goal is to create no less than 10 jobs per one million dollars invested.
