Invest in Downtown

  • Quality of Life: Missoula tops the “best of” lists annually with its beautiful surroundings, immediate access to almost any outdoor activity, rich historic and cultural environment, and sophisticated, hip yet down-to-earth atmosphere.
  • Workforce Pipeline: The University of Montana and Missoula College are adjacent Downtown and provide a steady workforce pipeline of smart, hardworking college graduates and students for any business. The city also has a highly-educated workforce, as nearly half of its residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • Entrepreneurship Spirt: Montana prides itself on its can-do-spirt. Today, Missoula boasts a growing entrepreneurship movement in life sciences, information technology, manufacturing, agriculture, and creative services. Many of these startups are thriving and making Downtown their home.
  • Safe and Clean Neighborhoods: The Downtown Missoula Partnership is committed to keeping Downtown clean and safe. It employs a team of people to ensure the streets are free of litter, garbage and debris. It also employs a full-time police officer to keep the area safe.
