The Software Factory focuses on developing software in modern development environments, with the capability to deliver concrete products in collaboration with public, non-profit, and private sector companies. It is a platform that provides the necessary processes and environment to deliver real products. It is about learning, sharing and growing entrepreneurial ideas that span the causal chain −from inception to deployment.


Our Story
The idea for  a software factory in Montana grew from a collaboration with Dr. Jurgen Munch at the University of Helsinki. Today, there exist a number of successful software factories in Europe, and our goal is to embrace this concept in our campus for the benefits of our students and our local business partners and community.
The Software Factory at Montana State University was established in January 2015 with a generous contribution from Zoot Enterprises.
