Tech Company Fivetran Expands at Denver’s STEAM on the Platte
Fivetran, Inc. a fast-growing tech company based in Oakland California, has leased 16,000 square feet at STEAM on the Platte, the newly developed office building at 1401 Zuni Street in Denver. With a dynamic central location, Fivetran expects to grow its current Denver team from 40 employees to more than 150 in the next three years.
Josh Pons, Matt Davidson, and Andrew Blaustein of Newmark Knight Frank represented the fast-growing tech company in the lease transaction.
Fivetran was founded by George Fraser and Taylor Brown in 2013 out of Y Combinator when the lifelong friends realized they could build a business information tool to streamline and accelerate analytics projects. Shaped by the real-world needs of data analysts, Fivetran technology supports agile analytics, enabling data-backed decisions across organizations. Headquartered in Oakland, California, Fivetran has satellite offices around the world including Denver, Bengaluru and Dublin.
“We identified Denver as a great place to expand into because it’s in a very central place in the country, making it easy to do business. The people are really friendly, and there’s this ‘work hard, but enjoy life’ atmosphere here, all of which is hyper important for our culture as we continue to grow.” said Taylor Brown, COO of Fivetran.
Fivetran reinvents data pipelines, allowing companies to effortlessly replicate their business data into cloud warehouses of their choice, enabling better real-time analytics. Data pipelines by Fivetran complement a wide range of data sources, data warehouses and business intelligence tools. Google recently partnered with Fivetran to create a new Data Transfer Service for its BigQuery data analytics platform.
“STEAM on the Platte offers an optimal environment for a rapidly expanding tech company like Fivetran,” noted Josh Pons, NKF associate director, who added that the newly developed 65,000-square-foot mixed-use community offers bold, creative office space combined with unique restaurant and retail options and a central location with easy access to light rail, Auraria Campus, Broncos Stadium at Mile High and downtown Denver. “STEAM seamlessly combines its industrial warehouse roots with its situation fronting the Platte River to create incubator space that spurs innovation, energy and collaboration.”
STEAM on the Platte was represented by Hayden Hirschfeld and Dorit Fischer with NAI Shames Makovsky Fivetran moved into its new space in August and will be featured in Denver Startup Week’s – Startup Cribs in September 2019, a celebration for Denver’s booming “entrepreneurial ecosystem”.
