On behalf of the New York City Economic Development Corporation, the Center for Real Estate Studies’ Capstone Seminar examined the various issues that growth-stage technology companies face when leasing office space in New York City. After compiling data from a variety of sources, including interviews with real estate and technology sector stakeholders and substantial legal research, the authors developed a practical guide for start-ups to use when negotiating a lease for office space. The guide identifies, in depth, the issues facing growth-stage technology companies in lease negotiations, provides practical advice on how to address those those issues, and suggests strategies for drafting the lease.
