Greg and Susan Gianforte started a hi-tech business in a spare bedroom of their home in Bozeman. Fourteen years later, they sold RightNow Technologies, Inc. to Oracle for $1.5 billion. Following the sale, Greg Gianforte started the Gianforte Family Foundation, which promotes hi-tech entrepreneurship in Montana, as well as conservative Christian causes.
