SkySong, the Arizona State University Scottsdale Innovation Center, will welcome a prominent new tenant to its newest office building.
Brightcove, a pioneering force in the world of online video, signed a lease to occupy 13,000 square feet of the first floor of SkySong 4, according to a press release.
The company, relocating from Tempe, has nearly 5,000 customers in 70 countries and is a leading provider of cloud services for video, the release states. It’s company offers a full suite of products and services that reduce the cost and complexity associated with publishing, distributing, measuring and monetizing video across devices.
“We are very fortunate to have Brightcove become part of the SkySong community,” Sharon Harper, president & CEO of Plaza Companies said in a release.
“They are truly pioneers in publishing video and they will fit right in with the other innovative technology companies that are already on the campus.”
According to a release, Brightcove’s presence at SkySong 4 helps accelerate the leasing momentum for the newest building at SkySong, which should open later this fall. The 145,000-square-foot building is the fourth office building to open at SkySong, with the other three near full occupancy.
In a release, Sethuraman Panchanathan, executive vice president of Knowledge Enterprise Development and chief research and innovation officer at ASU, said Brightcove is an ideal fit for the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship at the heart of SkySong.
“Brightcove is just the kind of company that can thrive from being in the SkySong environment, and we are very pleased that they have chosen to locate here,” Mr. Panchanathan said in a release. “It’s yet another sign that SkySong has emerged as the go-to destination for technology companies in the Valley of the Sun.”
Plaza Companies is the master developer of the project in partnership with the Arizona State University Foundation, the city of Scottsdale and Holualoa Companies.
