Aron Susman - TheSquareFoot

It was a “there’s GOTTA be a better way” moment that prompted the creation of TheSquareFoot, a one-stop shop for prospective tenants of office, retail or industrial space. Co-founder Aron Susman was frustrated that all the commercial real estate brokerages were geared toward brokers instead of tenants; he felt that it was all about the commission, and not so much the needs of the client. Susman and his partners were sufficiently frustrated with the process that they set about researching—then launching—a better way.
