SquareFoot has some exciting news to share today — our first ever acquisition! I wanted to take a minute to explain why, and how this positions SquareFoot to better serve growing businesses for years to come.
PivotDesk is a marketplace that connects people who need office space with those that have extra space. PivotDesk allows growing businesses that leased larger space than they immediately need to offset some of the cost of that otherwise unused space (we were a PivotDesk host for years), and is hugely popular among small teams that needed something flexible and cost-effective before settling into a more permanent setup.
The Commercial Real Estate industry has long failed to deliver on what growing businesses truly need — flexibility. Planning your team’s headcount 5-10 years in advance in order to secure an office lease is an unreasonable ask.
This is where SquareFoot comes in — our listing data and recommendation engine make discovery and comparison easy, our brokers guide people through the messy details, and our tools and software streamline every step of the process. Our products (now including PivotDesk) let people break out of the constraints of a traditional long-term lease, while still having access to the entire market.
PivotDesk is going to operate as a stand-alone business, but it’s a work in progress. We’re looking to hire a GM (here’s the job description) — if you or someone in your network seems like a great fit, I’d love to talk to them. In the meantime, if you need help with your office space search, give us a shout at email@example.com
