There’s nothing more exciting for a tech startup — except perhaps an IPO — than a brand new, shiny office. Given the amount of time most of us spend in our offices, it only makes sense. Most tech startups start off in very, shall we say, humble spaces. A couple of years and a couple of sales later, and it’s time to trade in the dump for something with some serious pizzaz. We caught up with three tech companies that recently upgraded their offices in a big way. They were all nice enough to show us around and let us take some photos. Check them out:
Number of employees: 45
Office size: 16,563 square feet
Move in date: July
Best part of the office: "Our tech aficionados love the interactive projection system that allows us to collaborate with anyone in the world (there is a rumor that they've turned it into an after-hours green screen and karaoke machine). Our company bikes and longboards get us around Englewood's City Center without driving, and we're right next door to an RTD transit hub."
What the office is missing: "A fireman’s pole between 1st and 2nd floors, an express train to Vail, and sleeping pods. They’re all pending our next round of funding!"
Number of employees: 48
Office size: 7,300 square feet
Move in date: September
Best part of the office: "Our stadium seating. It makes it really easy to hold company pep-rallies and after-work celebrations!"
What the office is missing: "We wish we had a treehouse themed patio that overlooked the downtown corridor and was full of fruits, libations and baby monkeys."
Number of employees: 240 employees
Office size: 112,000 square feet
Move in date: March
Best part of the office: "Great design, open, collaborative and fun, with a killer view of the Flatirons, Long’s Peak and the Front Range mountains."
What the office is missing: "A runway – for customer visits."
