Exclusive Partnership Connects Thriving Startups with their Next Office Space

Washington, D.C.   1776, the nation’s largest network of incubators, and Truss,  an award-winning platform for commercial real estate, announced today an exclusive partnership serving startups in the Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia area.

1776 members, which are comprised of early startups and growth entrepreneurs, will be able to find, tour and lease their next office space through Truss’ platform.  Those entrepreneurs, who are experiencing exponential growth, can use Truss’ artificial intelligence (AI) enabled platform to review and compare their options, such as the amenities and square footage.  

We’re always looking for unique benefits and ways to stay engaged with our member companies throughout their lifecycle.  Truss is a great solution to help them find their next office space and keep scaling their companies, without wasting their valuable time,” said Jennifer Maher, CEO of 1776.

As startups continue to grow and hire new team members, typically they need to find a new office space that offers the right functionality and offerings for their growing businesses, including conference rooms and break rooms.

Startup founders are focused on the strategic vision of their business and relentlessly pressed for time in other areas. When headcount growth becomes an urgent issue, they demand an efficient solution to site selection. The Truss platform streamlines actionable data, enabling smart and fast decisions,” said Bobby Goodman, co-founder of Truss.

Truss and 1776 plan to look for more partnership opportunities and roll out the program in additional markets.
