Episode Description

Are you a business owner looking to lease professional office space for the first time? Or perhaps you have even outgrown your current office space and are looking to upgrade? In either situation you need to understand the real estate market trends in your region as well as the needs of your existing small business. Is it better to negotiate with your existing landlord or is there opportunity to survey the real estate landscape around you for a better fit? On today’s episode of The Second Stage the hosts will be joined by commercial real estate expert, Mr. Andrew Coleman, Senior Vice President at Jones Lang Lasalle, to address these questions and more. Mr. Coleman will provide insight as to when the appropriate time is to evaluate your office space needs, factors to keep in mind when assessing your office budget as well as how flexible and alternative office space solutions may be the right match for start-up business or to fill a temporary need.

Brendan Anderson and Jeffrey Kadlic

Brendan Anderson and Jeffrey Kadlic

Brendan Anderson has spent the past 20 years as an investor and manager of businesses ranging from manufacturing to financial services. Fascinated by the capital gap within the small business growth sector, he rapidly came to the conclusion that providing best practices in addition to growth capital could consistently produce great results for the management, employees, communities, and investors. He is an active member and mentor within Entrepreneurs’ Organization, and is continuously entrenched in its culture of best practices.

Jeffrey Kadlic spent the first 10 years of his career making private investments in an institutional setting. Early success was achieved in large part to an entrepreneurial mindset within a corporate culture. While practicing as an institutional investor, working in and around dynamic small businesses, he recognized that growing small businesses needed more than just an influx of cash to scale operations. Leveraging corporate practices within an entrepreneurial setting, in addition to the capital, was the best way to achieve great performance.

Brendan and Jeffrey are both alumni of Crain’s Forty under 40 and E and Y Entrepreneur of the Year finalists.

Connected by their passion for growing small companies, in 2005, Anderson and Kadlic partnered to co-found Evolution Capital Partners, focused exclusively on advising and investing growth capital in Second Stage Companies. Evolution and its companies recognized on the Inc.500 5000.
