Bruce Thompson


Bruce Thompson’s career is the convergence of two passions, the built environment and the digital revolution. Upon completion of graduate school, Thompson embarked on a 20-year career in the global technology industry in various corporate development roles.

Following two successful start-up exits, Thompson and his family migrated back to Michigan to start what would become URBANEER and today serves as its CEO. URBANEER is a compact living innovation working to help deliver next-gen living spaces that integrate the physical and digital worlds. After 17 moves to 5 states and 3 countries in 33 years, Thompson and his wife Brenda live in an URBANEER prototype home in Grand Rapids, Michigan that is a living lab for flexible space and smart home innovation.
