Seattle may be experiencing a mass exodus of sorts at the moment but big companies are still eyeing the city. The most recent company to take interest in Seattle is the trading company Robinhood. Which you may have heard about recently with the Wall Street vs Reddit debacle of the past few weeks.
Robinhood is currently based in Menlo Park, California but says that it has plans to create a significant presence in Seattle. However, no office lease has been signed and the company is working remotely until at least August. So we’ll assume it will be a while before we see the company taking a stronghold in the city.
We’re democratizing Wall Street – and Pike Place. Robinhood is expanding to new locations in Seattle and New York City. We’re hiring across the U.S. – join us!https://t.co/fqcfUXbDM1

With that in mind, the company has raised $3.4 billion in fresh capital during the past few weeks. So clearly investors have an eye on them but we’ll see if they can regain the trust of the public and users. Regardless the company is growing and we can only assume that fintech will be the next wave of companies to hit Seattle.

After all, lots of local office space is available. And it might be time for companies to expand out of South Lake Union.JTNDZGl2JTIwaWQlM0QlMjJtb2JpbGUtYWQtb25seSUyMiUzRSUwQSUzQyUyMS0tJTIwU2VhdHRsZSUyMC0lMjBNb2JpbGUlMjAtLSUzRSUwQSUzQ2lucyUyMGNsYXNzJTNEJTIyYWRzYnlnb29nbGUlMjIlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBzdHlsZSUzRCUyMmRpc3BsYXklM0FibG9jayUzQndpZHRoJTNBMzIwcHglM0JoZWlnaHQlM0E1MHB4JTNCJTIyJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwZGF0YS1hZC1jbGllbnQlM0QlMjJjYS1wdWItNTUyMTg1Njk1NTQ5NzQ1NiUyMiUwQSUyMCUyMCUyMCUyMCUyMGRhdGEtYWQtc2xvdCUzRCUyMjE2MjcxNzI5NDclMjIlM0UlM0MlMkZpbnMlM0UlMEElM0MlMkZkaXYlM0U=
