ABOUT OFFICE LEASE CENTER:
The fastest way to an emerging tech company’s heart is through its venture capitalist. Such has been the modus operandi of Jack Petrie, a senior vice president at CresaPartners, who has amassed a list of clients that reads like a veritable who’s who of Silicon Alley. He’s found these clients through contacts and clients of his in venture capital. “I [find] that usually I can connect the dots with a lot of these companies with relationships I have with VC firms and people I have met through the community,” said Mr. Petrie.
PulsePoint, Clearspring and Jingle Networks have all found new office space through the aid of Mr. Petrie. Young firms like Sailthru, a behavioral email marketing service, and GramercyOne, a cloud-based software development firm, recently secured seed money from venture capitalists and tabbed Mr. Petrie to find them 15,000 square feet and 5,000 square feet of office space, respectively.
