AUSTIN, Texas – November 4, 2020 – Swivel, Inc., a digital office platform, today announced it has been honored with the 2020 Austin Inno on Fire Award in the Real Estate Tech category. Since its founding in 2017, the company has focused on providing virtual touring, digital leasing and workspace management applications to office landlords that make some of their offices available as short-term ‘flex spaces’.
When COVID hit, the company made the decision to broaden its business model and offer its SaaS products to landlords for use with any of their office spaces and tenants, not just their flex offices.
“One month after having closed our Series A in February, the pandemic unfolded. As a team we knew it was time to act fast to deliver a digital solution to help customers maintain leasing velocity as physical interaction was coming to a halt,” stated Swivel CEO and Co-Founder, Scott Harmon. “As a result, we’ve onboarded more than 1.5M in square footage of office space, and we’re starting to differentiate ourselves and build a track record of success, credibility, and reputation. COVID-19 accelerated our growth and goodwill, and we are grateful to be recognized among the many vibrant companies contributing to the vitality of the local entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
The Austin Inno on Fire Awards are designed to highlight local startups that have had a remarkable year. In the age of COVID-19, judges took into account how the pandemic motivated the local entrepreneurial community, inspired new solutions, pivots and initiatives aimed at addressing this disease. The distinct category COVID Innovators was added, and emphasized roles from several local startups and organizations who have taken response to social justice and equality.
Winners will be honored at the Inno on Fire virtual event on Dec. 2. During the show, the 10 Inno Blazers will be announced. Inno Blasers are the top-performing companies from each category that are chosen by a panel of local judges who are well-versed in the Austin ecosystem. The virtual event is open to the public. RSVP to the event here.
