What Will You Create?

Ideas. Design. Impact.


The Innovation Factory welcomes everyone from the Missoula community to engage in an energetic and creative partnership of design, entrepreneurship, prototyping, and change-making.

Add your skills and ideas to the dynamic environment at IF / blend the innovation mission into your projects / connect your colleagues and friends to a network of minds and resources.

Innovation Factory is a space, a curriculum and resources that serve as fertile ground for new thinking, new relationships, and a safe place to take risks.

IF is physically located on the 2nd floor of the UC, above the bookstore. It will offer team-scaled collaborative workspace, the Worklab makerspace, and Blackstone LaunchPad, the entrepreneurial hub. Programming will include tours, workshops, demonstrations, internships, visiting designers and entrepreneurs, certificates and micro-credentials, and volunteer opportunities.
