The COVID-19 pandemic has made remote work common—but most companies still need physical space, and finding it isn’t easy. You need to find a good broker, see dozens of spaces, and engage in a bureaucratically complicated process that makes the entire experience rather dreadful.
Jonathan Wassrstrum recognized this problem and saw an opportunity to create something better. So he founded SquareFoot, a company that offers businesses a streamlined office space rental experience, which includes comprehensive listings, experienced brokers, and easier paperwork.
On this edition of UpTech Report, Jonathan offers his take on the pros and cons of remote work, current trends in flexible workspaces, and explains why ultimately he feels having a physical office is an important need that won’t go away.
