Who are the tech companies on the move in 2017?

As the year comes to an end, we’ve been tracking the tech companies who have moved their offices in the past 12 months. The list includes tech companies – and not co-working spaces – that moved to Boston or within Boston in 2017, provided that the move led to a change of address (so moving within the same building doesn’t count).

Hoping to help our readers to get an immediate snapshot, we built an interactive map of who’s now where. To navigate the map, just click on the red house icon and you’ll see a window with a short summary of the move.

Here’s the map of the Boston tech companies on the move in 2017, and where to find them (data gathered by BostInno with the help of commercial real estate company CBRE/New England):
