Online Marketplace Connects Budding Startups With Office Spaces
HiRise could cut out the costly and time-consuming middle man within the real estate industry.
Based on a similar model to Airbnb, HiRise is an online service that helps prospective tenants rent office space online without hiring an expensive broker. Covered in our Future of Work report, coworking is continuing to be one of the top trends in the tech and commercial real estate industries, brought to the fore by the younger generation seeking not only new and fresh ways to work and collaborate, but creative environments that have fewer rules and regulations involved. Powered by Jones Lang LaSalle, the professional services and investment management company specializing in real estate, the project will launch in May for workers seeking small, short-term deals on potential office spaces in Washington, DC.
