A company I angel invested in Truss.co has expanded to Washington DC. Truss started in Chicago. It uses artificial intelligence to find office space for clients. They developed a chatbot, Vera, that clients can interact with to find the best space for their needs. Commercial Real Estate Brokers actually make more commissions by utilizing Truss.
CRE Brokers spend a lot of time and resources no matter what the space size. Truss allows them to make money on small space, build a relationship with clients, and still concentrate on leasing out the big spaces where their bread and butter are.
If you are a startup or a small business, finding office space is super painful. Truss makes it simple, quick, and efficient.
Truss is also in Dallas and Houston. They have more square feet listed on their platform targeting SMB’s than anyone else in the towns they are located in.
