Portland, Maine, June 28
KinoTek, a local digital health startup, has doubled in size over the past year and is tripling the size of its office footprint. The Boulos Company’s Sam Marinko represented KinoTek in their move from a coworking space to 22 Monument Square last July. Outgrowing the 524 SF space before the lease had even expired, landlord, Bill Stauffer, was able to accommodate them with a 1,720 SF space in the same building.
“Samantha and the entire Boulos team were incredible throughout the search,” said Joey Spitz, COO at KinoTek. “As a small business looking for our first office, we couldn’t have been more relieved to find a broker who was consistently communicative, trustworthy, and friendly. Professionals like Sam and Bill Stauffer believed in us and created opportunities for KinoTek.”
“Putting a company into their first commercial space is a monumental step in their early growth, and it’s really exciting to be a part of the process from the very beginning,” said Marinko. “It’s especially rewarding when they take off like KinoTek has. I work with a lot of start-ups, and these guys are growing at an extraordinary rate.”
Founded by then-University of Maine students, Justin Hafner and David Holomakoff in 2018, KinoTek is a movement analysis software company committed to helping clinicians better understand human kinesiology and helping injured patients with improved recoveries.
“In the same spirit that local businesses have supported KinoTek, we are prioritizing hiring graduates from Maine schools, maintaining our HQ in Portland, and contributing to the startup ecosystem in the state,” said Spitz. “Our success is Maine’s success and our story is about what a few kids in Maine can do when they work hard, dream big, and have the support of the state behind them.”
