How to invest in local businesses for cashflow

Jeff and Bill with Homestake Logo

Please join us to meet Jeff Batton and Bill Stoddart of Bozeman-based HomeStake Venture Partners. Over the past few years, HSVP has carved out a unique niche in the local funding market by helping local investors to efficiently find and invest in a variety of business opportunities. Most of these investments have been structured to create ongoing investor cash flow, rather than to rely on the typical strategy of waiting for a buyout to occur to achieve liquidity and returns. As a byproduct, their approach tends to create community-friendly outcomes — kind of like the long-ago time when community banks were more active in funding business opportunities in our community.
