Bozeman, Montana & The Yellowstone Business Partnership

By William Barnett, Dave Boennighausen
2004 | Case No. SI54
This case explores the economic growth issues of Bozeman, Montana, and the role that a new non-profit organization, the Yellowstone Business Partnership, could have in directing Bozeman’s future. Bozeman’s economy had grown rapidly, but with growth came concerns over development of environmentally sensitive areas, impact on local businesses, and affordability. YBP was formed to bolster the Yellowstone – Teton region’s economy and environment by seeking solutions, innovations, and inclusion from all sectors of the economy. As the location of the organization’s headquarters and largest chapter, Bozeman’s growth was particularly important to YBP for identifying programmatic objectives and growth implications for the region.
