Early Stage

GETTING OFF THE GROUND

Finding your first office space can be a journey itself. The challenge is a delicate balance between too big and too small, flexibility on terms, and keeping costs in check – all while finding the right space to attract the right talent.

We’ll help you through the entire process, from understanding costs and timelines, scheduling tours, negotiating the deal, and beyond.

Mid Stage

TAKING IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL

When achieving Series A funding, your company will typically establish a larger office presence – one that embodies your culture and brand. Aesthetics, budget, and flexibility may drive the search.

We will find space that aligns with your business plan and culture.

At series B or later, your growth plan – measured or rapid – will be in place. Your ideal space will energize your workforce and impress your customers and investors.

Mature Stage

SCALING FOR LONG-TERM GROWTH

Creating a long-term real estate strategy – one that satisfies both internal stakeholders and investors – is important at this stage.

We can assist with creating and implementing your strategy, from internal marketing to finding a headquarters that defines your company.
