Why a coworking company is helping members find offices of their own

Don’t take it the wrong way, but it’s time you got your own place.

That’s the message from coworking network 1776, which announced a new partnership with commercial real estate platform Truss. 1776 members will be able to find, tour and lease prospective office spaces, virtually.

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

Truss uses AI to help growing companies review and compare office space options, from the amenities to the square footage. Since founders are focused on other aspects of their companies, Truss cofounder Bobby Goodman says the platform is all about “enabling smart and fast decisions” when it comes to finding offices.

1776 members can access the Truss platform anytime. Other coworking providers are on the platform as well.

Truss and 1776 also plan to roll out the program in additional markets.
