Cushman & Wakefield launched a new online tool today designed to help tech startups navigate the New York City office rental market. The website, C&W TechBeat, will offer data and statistics to help fledgling companies choose office space that aligns with budgets, broadband needs and growth trajectories.

“A live webpage is better than some report,” Jamie Katcher, senior director at Cushman & Wakefield, told Crain’s. “Especially for this sector. TechBeat is designed to present high level topics that would be of interest to these specific clients.”

Tech start-ups have long found it difficult to find space to lease in New York because their needs run counter to those of landlords. C&W TechBeat will include resources such as Silicon Alley listings and information on how tech firms typically grow, reports Crain’s. [Crain’s]Tom DiChristopher
