Earlier this month I spent a week in Beautiful British Columbia. One of the trips we undertook was to Garibaldi Lake. After a 23 km hike we were rewarded with one of the most stunning views I have ever seen. The next day, sitting around the picnic table having breakfast, the conversation drifted towards business and startups, and the following question was put to me:“What is it like to start scaling a startup?”
It all started four years ago in my kitchen. Fast forward five (five!) offices later and we occupy a 9,000 sq. ft. office in the heart of Toronto’s startup hub. And, believe it or not, we are moving into a 16,000 sq. ft. space in 3 months. What have I learned from moving offices six times? A lot. In the spirit of paying it forward, here is everything I’ve learned about business real estate.
