Bozeman technology entrepreneur Greg Gianforte is asking Montanans who live out of state to come home, and to bring their high paying jobs with them.

He launched what he’s calling his “Bring our Families Back tour,” Monday visiting economic development agencies in northwest Montana to promote telecommuting as a way to drive up Montana’s average income and improve the economy.

As many as 1,000 students in Montana’s two-year colleges could find their path to a career just got a little bit smoother, thanks to Greg Gianforte, who made a fortune in Montana and is putting some of that money back into the community.

“Montana needs more high wage jobs. And one of the things we’ve learned is that manufacturing creates high wage jobs. Yet, not everybody in Montana that’s seeking work has the skills to get these jobs," says Gianforte.
