About PlaceHolder

What is PlaceHolder?

PlaceHolder is NOT a broker - it's an online marketplace that connects those with unused space (Hosts) with fast-growing companies that have outgrown coworking spaces and are looking for more space (Guests)

What is Hosting?

Hosts monetize their unused office space by turning it into a profit center. Our Hosts can earn $50K - $300K per year and use the proceeds to reduce their operating costs or hire new employees

“We had a ton of empty, unfurnished space that was just sitting empty. PlaceHolder listed it, filled it with furniture, and found our Guest within two weeks. We make enough money from renting out that space that we were able to hire two more developers. .”
James, Toronto
“We had some unused space and met with a few groups to help us fill it, but the cost was going to be really expensive. PlaceHolder cost us nothing and they handled everything - they're a total no-brainer.”
Dana, Toronto
“We tried posting our empty space on Kijiji and Craigslist, but they’re flooded daily with other ads and our ad would end up on page 20 where no one could ever find it. PlaceHolder’s private marketplace made it easy for our Guest to actually find our ad and get in touch with us.”
Kathleen, Toronto
“We still had three years left on our lease but were growing slower than expected and found ourselves in a tough spot financially. PlaceHolder found an amazing company to share our space with us and halved our rent costs overnight.”
Kevin, Calgary
