North Star is located in Bozeman, Montana (U.S.A). Given the global nature of the research that we lead for our clients, some are surprised by our off-the-beaten-path location.
Historically, large research projects have been administered by market research firms in major metropolitan areas. Advances in technology, however, have made global research possible from non-urban areas with lower overhead and operating expenses.
Bozeman is a thriving, college community in the Rocky Mountains with a population of about 50,000. It is located between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. Over the past ten years, Bozeman has emerged as a hotbed for high-tech and biotech startups due to its proximity to a first-rate research university and a well-educated labor force.
