Emerging Technology

Our Emerging Technology Advisory Group gets where your business is going. We scale your real estate strategy to match your growth.

Visionary Thinking Calls for Creative Real Estate Solutions

Whether you’re considering co-working spaces, leased locations, or owned buildings and campuses, we keep the focus on your near- and long-term business success. Our relationships with emerging companies, both public and private, have instilled our experts with a unique, cutting-edge perspective on doing business in the digital economy.

Tech-sector innovation is propelling startups to apply as much fresh thinking to their workspaces as they do to their products and services. They’re challenging conventional wisdom with new theories on workspace layouts, telecommuting, and what constitutes a healthy, happy, and productive work environment. However, these innovations must adhere to traditional indicators of efficiency and return on investment. That’s where we come in.

Benefit from Our Scalability
Our resources scale to match your growth: Whether your team is 10, 1,000, or 10,000 members strong, our worldwide team of subject matter experts will support your growth.

Stages of Business Growth

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.

Shared Workspace
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.

Scaling for Long-term Growth
