Appear Here, an online marketplace for short-term retail space, is expanding to the US.

The firm, which was founded in London in 2013 and has so far raised $9.4m from investors including Balderton Capital, Forward Partners and MMC Ventures, will first open an office in New York.

Founded by Ross Bailey, Appear Here seeks to put retail landlords in touch with business owners to facilitate the rental of space.

Bailey spoke about the firm’s expansion plans: “Appear Here’s mission since day one has been to create a world where anyone with an idea can find space to make it happen.

“So our US expansion is an exciting milestone for the company. New York is one of the most coveted retail destinations in the world and it’s filled with some of the best brands, creatives and designers. Where Appear Here can make a real difference is in bringing their ideas to life and making New York a more exciting city for people to discover,” he added.

As part of the expansion to New York, where it currently employs six people, Appear Here has partnered with some of the city’s most well-known landlords including Thor Equities and Simon Property Group.

The firm also has offices in France.
