Creating the software layer for the built environment

We’re changing the way owners and operators think about tenant experience

Our story

Our team is made up of a wide range of experts in technology, community-building, and real estate. In our past lives, our founders also built AmericanInno, a digital media and events company, and grew it to an audience of over 10M in 12+ local tech communities across the US.

Before AmericanInno was acquired in 2012 by Advance Publications, owners of American City Business Journals, Conde Nast, and others, we quickly learned the opportunities and challenges facing the commercial real estate industry, AmericanInno’s largest customer segment.

HqO’s goal is to help the commercial real estate industry explore and adopt technology that collects actionable data about 99% of the people who occupy property on a daily basis – the tenants themselves.

We took all we learned and mastered about building community around digital experiences, applied our data-driven, mobile-first development approach, and delivered the industry’s leading tenant experience (TeX) platform for commercial real estate.

We're a team of 35, based in Boston, with $6.6M in seed funding. Our platform is used by thousands of tenants in millions of square feet of commercial real estate across the US. The leading property owners and operators in the world are partnering with us on our mission to connect tenants to the places, experiences, and people that enrich where they live, work, and play – and we couldn’t be more excited.

Life at HqO

As a company that’s always recommending tenant experience strategies for others, it’s important for us to practice what we preach.  Which is why we created HqOX: our own internal team dedicated to creating a place where WE love to work. Whether it's during our weekly lunch & learns, happy hours, coffee talks, or just an average day in the office, we always find time to make work fun.
