The founder of an online marketplace for business owners who don’t want to relocate has found a new home in New York City.
In an interview with ABC News, Jason Hildebrand said he is glad to be in the New York area for his new job and is confident he will find his way back to California if he is ever offered a spot on the Stock Exchange.
Hildebrand has been in the market for several years for a place to live in the city where he grew up.
He is an entrepreneur who uses a combination of online business models to build a business from nothing.
“I had a little bit of a roller coaster, but it’s been an amazing ride,” Hildebrands business model said in the interview.
“It’s been a ride I couldnt have predicted when I started.”
A former software engineer, Hildebring launched the website and online business for business buyers that he describes as “a real-time marketplace.”
It currently has more than 1 million customers who are looking to buy, sell, or give away things like cars, furniture, art, electronics, furniture accessories, toys, and more.
“A lot of the things that people are looking for are things that are not in our price range,” Hildabring said.
“We’re not in a price bracket where you can get a car, you can’t get a new couch.
You’re not going to buy a new computer or a new TV, you’re not really in a good price range.”
Hildebring, who has two adult children, said he has had more than 200 business offers from businesses looking to lease the company space in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and New York.
Hildebutts current lease, for example, has been extended through the end of January.
Hildabring has been renting space in the building that houses the Stock exchange for years and has been a big supporter of the building’s renovation.
“There is a lot of excitement about the renovation of the Stock office building,” Hilda said.
“It’s not just about what it is for a new building, but what it can be for a local business,” he said.
Hilda says he has received several offers to lease space in his office and has made an offer for one of the two floors in the center of the office building.
“The opportunity that I have now is much more than I had anticipated,” Hila said.
Hildas office has been renovated several times and he said the renovation will make the space even more attractive to businesses.
“This is the first time I have had a real opportunity to do a full renovation,” he added.
Hila is excited about the opportunity to work in the new building that he says will be able to offer a bigger space to businesses and a better working environment for him.
“One of the benefits that we are getting is a whole lot more space that we haven’t had before,” he told ABC News.
Hailhbeards first foray into the city of New York was in the 1990s when he bought a small restaurant in the Financial District.
He opened his first restaurant, The Kitchen, in the late 1990s and it was a success, becoming a fixture in the financial district.
“We started the business as a hobby and a way to make some money for ourselves,” Haine said.
He opened The Kitchen to much acclaim, and it has since grown into a business that has been around since 1997.
Haine says the restaurant has grown to include more than 100 locations across the city, and he has grown his business into an empire of more than 10,000 restaurants and over $500 million in revenue.
Haine said he believes his success will continue as he is constantly learning about New York and is constantly finding new ways to make money.
“As I have grown and I have gotten to know New York more and more, it’s just been an exciting time,” Hain said.
