Happy first birthday to the Boston Idea Group! You may be asking, “What is the Boston Idea Group?” At T3, we are constantly trying to find ways to provide value to our clients and help their companies succeed. After talking to a number of clients and friends, we realized that while the tech community in Boston is strong, the connection between those involved in keeping the offices of the technology companies running did not exist. In these roles, employees are often wearing many hats and regardless of experience level, there are always things they will be doing for the first time.
For global companies, real estate leases and contracts represent a large financial and operating commitment. Additionally, publicly traded companies have very specific financial reporting requirements. Whether you have 10 leases or a global portfolio in the hundreds, data and its analysis around your real estate portfolio is critical in order to effectively manage and scale. To this end, effective real estate technology systems that deliver the necessary data foundation are key to enabling your company to measure real estate performance, develop interpretative management reports, as well as scalable global processes. In an era of smaller corporate real estate teams, technology is a critical lever to achieve Smart Growth.

T3 unveils our newest resource - the Stanford Scouting Report! One of things that we pride ourselves on at T3 Advisors is our ability to cut through the clutter to get to the heart of what really matters to our clients. And that applies just as much to the resources we provide as it does to a multi-site real estate search. So, without further ado, we are excited to bring you the T3 Stanford Scouting Report.
Last week, I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak at a really awesome event surrounding a topic that's of interest to so many people: "Changing Workspace: How Echo Boomers are Changing Trends." Sponsored by HighProfile and organized by our friends at Nickerson PR, it was an evening filled with some great insights about how Millenials, AKA "echo boomers," are shifting traditional views of what the workplace and the associated corporate culture should be.
