We're happy to share news about our partnership with 1871, Chicago’s center for technology and entrepreneurship. Our partnership will serve startup founders and entrepreneurs in Chicago.

Our online marketplace will now feature 1871 spaces, including 3D tours of their options. Entrepreneurs and founders who are looking to add or expand office or coworking space can use our platform to review and compare their options, including the amenities offered at 1871.

“1871 exists to inspire, equip, and support founders to build great businesses and ensure that they have access to all the resources that they need to thrive,” said 1871 CEO Betsy Ziegler. “We know that great companies start with great ecosystems. That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with Truss and provide Chicago’s tech and startup community with a platform to identify the environments that will maximize their potential.”

As startups outgrow their space, they can use our platform again to find their next office space in the market or when adding another market. We will also offer support to 1871 members seeking real estate advice or consulting.

“We want to help Chicago’s entrepreneurs find the right space for their businesses, either through 1871 or when they’re ready to find their own space.  We’re thrilled they can do this on Truss’ platform right from their own laptops or mobile devices,” said Tom Smith, co-founder of Truss. “This allows business owners to focus and grow their businesses while also using the startup ecosystem to network and share ideas.”
