colin greenhalgh helps startups find office space in Boston
Colin Greenhalgh is a true Bostonian – born here, raised here, and continues to live here. He has been in commercial real estate for almost 11 years, primarily working in the downtown markets.
Colin joined Truss, an online marketplace for commercial real estate, in October 2018 to open their Boston office because of his continuing compassion to help startups find the right office space or coworking space for their budget and company culture. He has found that a lot of entrepreneurs who are looking for a space don’t know where to start. And he loves to be a sounding board for those entrepreneurs, supporting them in better understanding their own needs and finding space through the Truss marketplace that can serve their company’s short and longer-term goals as they grow.Colin Greenhalgh of Truss on Helping Startups Find Homes - @3Greensie3 @TrussHoldings Click To Tweet (more…)
