About Truss

When we started Truss, we set out to make leasing space as easy as booking a vacation online.

Truss is a leading online marketplace to help small and medium sized business owners find, tour and lease space.  Our tech-enabled platform and our people help you find the right space for the best price in record time.  

We help small businesses find office and coworking space with more than 300 million square feet available and counting. Our technology enables business owners to find the right space confidently by comparing spaces in our marketplace. Truss also offers dedicated brokers who act as the point person throughout the seamless process.  

Plus, we are the only platform to offer price transparency for small business owners, which means we’re the only site to compare pricing on traditional office space and coworking space. 

The result? You have the best information and a straightforward way to efficiently lease space you can call home.
