Cushman & Wakefield is proud to support CED because of their critical role in nurturing the next generation of entrepreneurial companies, ensuring that the Triangle remains a “future-facing” economy — at the epicenter of growth and innovation in life science and technology. These goals align with Cushman & Wakefield’s own role in assisting entrepreneurs and their companies during this critical stage of the business. How does Cushman & Wakefield help North Carolina entrepreneurs? Via a robust local presence and industry-specific practice groups, Cushman & Wakefield provides optimized commercial real estate solutions to start-up, emerging private, and early stage public companies. We share the creative, transformative, and dynamic business aspirations of our clients, and bring insight accumulated through years of experience partnering with tech and life science companies in our market. We specialize in providing customized solutions to craft the optimum workplace for each stage of growth through the startup life cycle, and our local team has served as a trusted strategic advisor to several of the Triangle’s most notable success stories. What does Cushman & Wakefield envision for the future of entrepreneurship? We see the future of entrepreneurship capitalizing on the increasing influence or role played by exponential technologies; in effect, cloud-based hyper-collaboration around the problems entrepreneurs are attempting to solve. Given the continued impact of global connectivity, we expect entrepreneurs to do more with less and to access resources and intellectual capital globally. We also believe their work environments will continue to evolve, emphasizing inspiration, collaboration, authenticity and a focus on minimizing impact to the environment (the world in which we live).
