TheSquareFoot, which launched in late June, makes commercial real estate leasing easier with its online platform that gives prospective tenants a free and easy way to manage the often arduous process of finding office, retail, and warehouse space to rent for their business. Users can search and manage available property listings, connect directly with landlords or reputable tenant brokers, and ultimately with service and product providers including furniture vendors, IT consultants, and commercial movers to get their business ready for business.
START also launched in June and aims to provide a professional and yet fun space for designers, developers, freelancers, entrepreneurs, employees or thought leaders to collaborate together in the technology space.
Together, TheSquareFoot and START are aiming to raise awareness of the burgeoning Houston startup scene, provide services and resources for entrepreneurial efforts and events, and bring together two networks that can help the startup community in Houston flourish.
“What better way to educate local entrepreneurs and small business owners about finding space for their business and integrating them into Houston’s growing start up community than for TheSquareFoot and START to work together.” says TheSquareFoot Co-Founder Justin Lee.
"Having extensive experience in both the online & traditional real estate space, its truly refreshing to see a company like TheSquareFoot take a crack at the messy and complex commercial real estate industry. Though other companies have tried to solve these problems, TSF has a unique model and user friendly experience that is going to put a big dent in this industry, we're glad to partner with them as they grow and solve these problems!" says START Co-Founder Apurva Sanghavi.
Founded in 2011, TheSquareFoot makes commercial real estate leasing easier with its online platform that connects prospective tenants with the full complement of providers they need for finding and setting up a new office, restaurant, warehouse, or retail store. TheSquareFoot also provides landlords with a full suite of services to help them manage and market their portfolios.
The platform initially launched in Houston, Texas and New York City, two markets with extremely robust commercial leasing landscapes. Press information can be found at http://www.thesquarefoot.com/
