A Year of CREtech (and Winning a RETA!)

on Dec 12, 2018 11:47:29 AM By | Katie Sullivan | 0 Comments | PropTech & CRE Trends HqO News Tenant Experience
This year, we've done our fair share of traveling around the country to various conferences and events, telling attendees all about the importance of tenant experience software in commercial real estate. One constant conference for us was CREtech – we followed Michael Beckerman and his team around, from Boston, to Chicago, to LA, to San Francisco, and just last week, to New York City. We enjoyed a years worth of content and panels, shook a bunch of hands, and witnessed the increase of tech momentum in commercial real estate with each event.

Scaling HqO's Tenant Experience Platform with Funding from Accomplice, JLL Spark, Navitas Capital, DivcoWest, and More

on Sep 27, 2018 8:05:00 AM By | Chase Garbarino | 0 Comments | HqO News
Today, our team at HqO is excited to announce we closed $6.6M in seed financing, led by Accomplice with a tremendous group of strategic investors, included in the release below. As the leader in the tenant experience space, we aren't just building a company, but creating a new category of software. While the capital is helpful, what is most powerful about this round is the strategic advantage this consortium of investors provides us.     We are grateful to the industry leaders from JLL Spark who took a deep dive into the tenant experience landscape which played out over several months. We are also fortunate that Spark's CEOs, Mihir and Yishai, have extensive backgrounds in consumer technology, which led them to dig deep into the key user metrics of the players in the space, and ultimately determine that we are the team to back.    Big thanks to Ryan Moore and Accomplice for the continued support, Jody Gessow and Steve Novick at DivcoWest who became early believers, and Travis Putnam at Navitas for bringing a tremendous amount of value already in a short period of time.    We look forward to expanding our team and scaling our offering to continue to help landlords to create places that people love.
