Leasabl helps businesses find, lease and outfit space as easy as booking a trip online. Our marketplace monetizes $80 billion worth of idle commercial real estate by allowing qualified businesses to book entire spaces on demand, from 1 day to 3 years.
Leasing is hard. It's time-consuming, costly and intimidating.
Leasabl uses technology in 3 areas to make it a snap:
Processes: We streamline the cumbersome leasing process to provide a frictionless, transparent experience
Legal: Unique, exclusive agreements are part of our secret sauce
Matching: Ensures needs and cultural fit—the best predictors of a successful match of business and space
Jason and Jared met during Jason's office hours in March 2012. They bonded and have been friends and partners ever since.
Jason leads product and customer development. His experience as an entrepreneur and a journalist brings outside-the-box thinking and action to a huge slow-moving industry.
Jared focuses on industry partnerships and supply-side activities. His real estate and marketing background provides industry expertise and connections.
Why we're doing this
In 2009, while trying to open Chicago's first coworking space, Jason ran smack into a problem shared by millions of space seekers: Leasing sucks.
His journalism training led him to the root cause of his frustration: The commercial real estate industry uses an outdated, intentionally opaque system that incentivizes owner and broker interests over customer (space seeker) interests. This stifles prosperity on a global scale.
Leasabl unlocks a massive opportunity to make the world a better place.
