Small to medium-sized business owners, typically with 50 employees or less, can now find, tour and lease office space options throughTruss’ platform, which includes virtual 3D tours and price transparency.
“We’re thrilled to launch in Boston and we’ve seen pent-up demand in the market,” said Bobby Goodman, co-founder of Truss. “As quickly as we added new office space inventory to our platform, there was immediate interest in leasing the space by local entrepreneurs and startups here.”
In the Boston area, Truss has more than 600 office spaces and 15 coworking locations, totaling more than 7.5 million square feet of available office space. A variety of office space options are located in Boston’s most popular areas for innovation and technology-focused companies, including Downtown Crossing, Midtown, Cambridge, Brighton and Seaport. Business owners also benefit from shared commission when they sign, tour and lease through Truss.
“We’re excited to work with Truss on our real estate portfolio as we continue to grow in Boston and around the country, but we also think it is a great resource for our portfolio companies as well,” said Chris Fahey, chief people officer at Alumni Venture Group. “The virtual reality tours and complete pricing transparency minimize the need to tour spaces in person and reduce the timetable of the office leasing process overall.”
