It's time. You've made it through MassChallenge and you're starting to ramp up. Co-working has been great, but your team is growing too large and it's time for your own space. Now what? Where can you set up a business so you have a fighting chance at success? How do you figure out where to go that lets you find a place you can afford while also attracting the talent you need?
This Lunch and Learn panel session, sponsored by the N-Squared Innovation District, will include Chris Steele, a site selection expert with Investment Consultants, and Arnon Tuval, a consultant with Insperity. They will help participants better understand how to:
- Identify the right general location;

- Ask the landlord the right question;
- Find happiness when you're building your own location.
