|The HighTower team busy at work at Think Big Partners.|
When HighTower Furniture Group was looking to expand to a new location, it looked past Indianapolis, skimmed over Detroit, and merely glimpsed at Chicago. Finally, the group landed in a place "more unique" than the other large Midwestern cities: it landed in Kansas City. And more specifically, in Think Big Partners' coworking space.
When asked "why Kansas City?", HighTower's VP of Sales, Kristin Goodman simply smiled. "We wanted Kansas City because it's different than a place like Chicago. And at HighTower, we are all about being different."
As HighTower's third location (they are also located in Los Angeles and New York City), Kansas City provides the interconnectedness of a "small" city with the energy and collaborative vibe of a big entrepreneurial community.
Once landing in a city that met HighTower's needs, the company was then on the search for the right office space. Serial entrepreneur and founder of HighTower, Scott Hartkopf, found Think Big Partners online and recommended Goodman to take a tour of the space. Immediately after taking the tour, Goodman and her team were convinced: this was the office space for them.
"We were extremely cautious and particular of our surroundings when choosing an office space," says Goodman. "When we saw Think Big Partners' space, we loved the creative-design environment that it offered. We automatically felt comfortable here."
As a company that manufactures and sells modern office furniture, HighTower knows what a creative, comfortable, and innovative workspace should look like. Now as tenants in Think Big Partners' coworking space, the team of HighTower Kansas City can collaborate with entrepreneurs, remain close to the buzzing downtown area, and most importantly, stay inspired and motivated throughout the workday.
"An innovative workspace like Think Big Partners brings out the best in people," says Goodman. "It brings out creativity. It gives you confidence. Everybody needs to work in a space that makes them want to work; this space does it for us."
