About Venture West Development
A Full-Service Commercial Real-Estate Development Team
Our portfolio of single and multi-tenant commercial real estate and land-development projects has revolved around slow, thoughtful, organic growth for a decade now, coming together in 2021 under the Venture West Development umbrella. Venture West has an array of projects across the Gallatin Valley, Bozeman, Belgrade, Wisconsin, and throughout the Midwest.
We Develop Responsibly
Rapidly growing communities, like the Gallatin Valley, require careful master planning, permitting, and construction to maintain the integrity of the surrounding areas. We create a careful balance of development quality and affordability customized for the surrounding community.
As our founder says, "You have the ability to have a huge impact on future generations, to build a long-lasting product that adds value for future generations after you're gone."
Venture West Development works to make our clients' lives easier and more efficient by providing turn-key, build-to-suit buildings. We've worked with banks, engineering firms, architecture firms, etc. through the development process—providing support on everything from site selection to the final build.
What I offer my investors is local expertise, a relentless pursuit of understanding all the variables, and the research to back up a project," Waller says. "I definitely treat my investor's money more importantly than I treat my own.

Meet the force driving us forward.
Like so many others, the passions of skiing and fly fishing are what first made Todd Waller fall in love with Bozeman. He first came to the area in 1998. Now, Bozeman is where he's raising his young family.
"We're a ski family," he says. "It's what we do. Both my kids started when they were two, and we're out there every week skiing together. Then, in the summer, we're avid campers, and we love to fly fish."
For Waller, Bozeman's been the perfect place for this lifestyle and finding the ideal work/life balance. Waller's love for the Gallatin Valley, and the knowledge and insight that come with it, have enlightened his perspective as a developer.
"When you get into situations of rapidly growing communities, responsible development is critical," Waller says. "You have to approach your development with much thought, from a design standpoint, from a land-use standpoint, from an environmental impact standpoint."
Waller feels that rather than simply caring about the bottom line, responsible community development takes excellent care in everything from aesthetics and continuity of architecture to finding a strong balance of quality and affordability. He believes that there is a tremendous benefit to a community when those developing that community call the place home.
To develop in the community where you live is a responsibility and a privilege. You have the ability to have a huge impact on future generations, to build a long-lasting product that adds value for future generations after you're gone.
