Oxford is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in our organization and the community.
When it comes to Ann Arbor commercial real estate, the prospect of free rent is a compelling one! Startups, like the ones who often work with accelerators and incubators like Ann Arbor SPARK and TechArb, often don’t have cash on-hand to use for downtown Ann Arbor office space – and that’s where OXIO SAFE comes in.
Oxford Companies knows that our Ann Arbor economy and the local startup community are intertwined, and that helping our entrepreneur community grow and thrive will benefit all of us. We also have outstanding, conveniently-located, beautifully-designed Ann Arbor office spaces throughout the area. So, we’ve announced that our popular Oxford Instant Office program now has a new, optional component – a simple agreement for future equity. Interested startups can sign an OXIO lease and forego rent payments for six months up to a year, in exchange for equity in their business. Innovation drives value, and Oxford’s values include putting our Ann Arbor commercial real estate portfolio to good use!
The local Ann Arbor commercial real estate journalism scene was particularly interested in this new initiative, as were several regional and national publications as well. Check out the roundup below of media features and mentions that Oxford generated when we shared the good news about the new OXIO SAFE program.
