Together, we’re transforming tenant experience.

HqO Employees


We are building technology to create real-world experiences that lead to more meaningful connections. Within the built environment, we focus on the places where people work, as we believe that economic success and opportunity is the core driver of the successful “live, work, play” value proposition that many communities strive for. When communities work well and prosper economically, people usually live and play far better.​

Our Story

In 2009, Kevin McCarthy, Chase Garbarino, and Greg Gomer founded AmericanInno, a digital media and events business targeted at helping bolster the innovation economies of American cities. After selling to Advanced Publications in 2015, they teamed up with Jared Stenquist to start HqO.

With a strong interest in how technology connects people back to the real world around them, they set their sights on commercial real estate. They launched HqO in 2018 and began developing technology that connects people back to their local community and the people around them in a more impactful way.

Today, tenant experience technology plays a bigger role than ever before, helping transform properties from a physical space into communities that offer real value to the workforce.
