    OEN Workshop: From Garage to an Office - Everything an Entrepreneur Needs to Know about Leasing Space

    Kidder Mathews

    Besides employee payroll, "Office, Industrial, or Retail Space" is usually a company's highest business expense. Yet many entrepreneurs put this on the back burner and deal with their space needs at the last minute.

    This workshop will cover what you need to know when your company is growing and you are ready to take the next step for new space or ready to expand/relocate from your current location. This session will help you plan, as well as begin thinking of future space needs so you do not lose your leverage with landlords or get thrown into a space that will cost you and your investors money that could and should be used towards other business expenses.

    Topics covered in this session will be:

    Timeline for the real estate process

    Lease terms

    Typical length of leases and expectations for Tenant Improvements

    Costs the Landlord should pick up, NOT the company

    Costs other than the rent you should expect

    Typical steps during the real estate process
