By establishing collaborative programs between institutions and the private sector, the MSU Innovation Campus will amplify research, commercialize new technologies, and catalyze Montana’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Blending high-tech companies, motivated students, and cutting-edge research in state of the art facilities - this is the future of technology innovation.
Occupying 42 acres, the fully approved development will exist as the nucleus for Bozeman’s high-tech economy. In partnership with Montana State University, the 20,000 square foot Applied Research Lab opened in 2020 and is becoming a driving force of economic development.
The MSU Innovation Campus strengthens the research capability of MSU to expand the commercialization of technology related to MSU’s clusters of academic and research excellence.
Montana’s untamed landscape, and the type of people who are drawn to it, have shaped the state’s business culture and its inclination toward entrepreneurship.
