HqO Company Overview

A fundamental shift is happening in the commercial real estate space. An industry that was solely focused on physical asset management has shifted to one centered on user experience. As a result, HqO has led the development of a new proptech category: tenant experience (TeX) software.

Tenants want a space where employees will love to come to work each day – and landlords that provide an exceptional experience will help tenants with talent recruitment and retention. We believe that TeX software will be a key layer in the way people experience physical space. As the leader in the TeX space, HqO partners with landlords, property managers, and brokers who want to attract innovative tenants, provide a premium experience, and increase overall asset value. 

The HqO platform is currently live in millions of square feet of commercial real estate, in properties owned by leading property owners, such as DivcoWest, Jamestown, National Development, Boylston Properties, Bulfinch Companies, and more. Headquartered in Boston, HqO raised a $6.6M round of seed funding in September 2018 from Accomplice and a syndicate of strategic commercial real estate partners, including JLL Spark, Navitas Capital, DivcoWest, Pritzker Group Venture Capital, and others.
