BOZEMAN – INDUSTRY Bozeman, a multi-tenant modern office space broke ground Friday morning on an 87,000-square-foot building to be located on the Montana State University Innovation Campus.

INDUSTRY provides customizable workspaces for long-term tenants that include shared amenities. INDUSTRY Bozeman will feature 61,000 square feet of fully customizable workspace and 26,000 square feet of common spaces, such as conference and huddle rooms, kitchens, event space and more. INDUSTRY Bozeman will be the company’s fourth space, with locations already open in Denver, Salt Lake City and, soon, Detroit.

“At its core, INDUSTRY is about infusing activity through purposeful placemaking,” said Jason Winkler co-founder of INDUSTRY. “INDUSTRY Bozeman will be a catalyst for the MSU Innovation Campus’ creative and entrepreneurial vision, and we are thankful to the MSU Alumni Foundation, MSU and the city of Bozeman for welcoming us into this fast-paced market.”

The 42-acre Innovation Campus is located between College and Garfield streets west of South 19th Avenue. It is being developed by Charter Realty and Development in partnership with the MSU Alumni Foundation and its subsidiary, MSU Innovation Campus.

The MSU Innovation Campus aims to create opportunities for companies to collaborate with MSU research, faculty and students, while helping those companies grow and raising Montana’s profile as national leader in entrepreneurship and innovation.

Once complete, the campus will be home to more than a half-million square feet of technology, office and bio-tech facilities. INDUSTRY will be the second development on the campus. The first, MSU’s Applied Research Laboratory, opened in 2020.

“Bozeman and the Gallatin Valley are home to many dynamic and growing companies, and those companies need modern workspaces where they can thrive,” said Dan Zelson, principal of Charter Realty and Development. “INDUSTRY Bozeman fits a real need and aligns perfectly with the innovative spirit of Bozeman and our campus.”

Companies that locate within INDUSTRY Bozeman will benefit from their proximity to MSU and the working relationships with students and faculty at the state’s largest research enterprise and largest university.

“INDUSTRY Bozeman is a big step forward for the 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.
