INDUSTRY Bozeman to Join MSU Innovation Campus

Bozeman, MT (July 6, 2021) – Charter Realty & Development (1), Q Factor (2) and the Montana State University Innovation Campus are excited to announce INDUSTRY Bozeman will join the 42-acre MSU Innovation Campus in Bozeman with an 87,000- square-foot facility. This represents one of the largest commercial deals in Bozeman to date.

INDUSTRY is a leading provider of modern-day, custom, innovative workspace with facilities in Salt Lake City, Denver and Detroit, with more locations to come.

INDUSTRY provides customizable spaces for its tenants with shared amenities. Construction on INDUSTRY Bozeman will begin later this year.

The Innovation Campus is being developed by Charter Realty & Development as the master developer in partnership with the Montana State University Alumni Foundation and its subsidiary, the MSU Innovation Campus. Once complete, the campus will house more than half a million square feet of tech, office and bio-tech space. The campus is located between College and Garfield streets and west of South 19th Avenue.

“With the growth of the local economy and the demand for new and improved space among many of Bozeman and Gallatin Valley’s fast-growing companies, we believe INDUSTRY Bozeman is the perfect solution,” said Dan Zelson, principal of Charter Realty & Development. “As we imagine the next five, 10 and 15 years in Bozeman, we think INDUSTRY is an ideal fit for the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship that defines the overall economy of Bozeman and our campus. We see it as an accelerator for companies that are growing.”

INDUSTRY Bozeman will include 61,000 square feet of offices and 26,000 square feet of common space, not including outdoor areas. Within the common space, tenants will have access to shared kitchens, conference/huddle rooms, a reception area, an event stadium and more.

“At its core, INDUSTRY has always been about infusing activity through purposeful placemaking of undeveloped spaces. While our past INDUSTRY projects have focused  on revitalizing once-forgotten industrial buildings, the 87,000-square-foot new construction INDUSTRY Bozeman office will serve as a catalyst for making the Montana State University Innovation Campus’ creative and entrepreneurial vision a reality. We appreciate the Montana State University Alumni Foundation, Montana State University and the city of Bozeman for welcoming us with open arms into this dynamic market,” said Jason Winkler co-founder of INDUSTRY.

“INDUSTRY Bozeman is a significant step forward for the MSU Innovation Campus and will greatly contribute to the world-class research and innovation taking place at Montana State University,” said Jason Carter, vice president of research, economic development and graduate education at Montana State.

With its proximity to MSU, companies that locate within INDUSTRY’S development will have opportunities to explore working relationships with the only “very high research activity” university, as defined by the Carnegie Classification of Higher Education, in a five-state region and one of the top 100 public research universities ranked by the National Science Foundation.

INDUSTRY tenants will also have a singular point of contact for introductions to researchers, faculty and programs, as well as students to address their specific hiring needs.


Charter Realty & Development is a bicoastal commercial development company with over 8 million square feet of mixed-use commercial space. Charter is also developing several large projects in the Bozeman market.

The MSU Innovation Campus is a 42-acre development designed to:

  • Create an environment of collaboration and innovation between local and national enterprises in conjunction with Montana State University.
  • Accelerate global business objectives of on-site companies.
  •  Raise Montana’s profile as a national leader in entrepreneurship and innovation through co-location of Montana’s fastest growing companies.
  • Create a sustainable regional economic and social asset.
