CBF Cool Offices: Upstart’s Columbus HQ2 could grow bigger than Silicon Valley home base

Upstart Network Inc. picked Columbus for its second headquarters 13 months ago and set a stretch goal of 100 employees by the end of 2019.

It’s already hired 120, including data scientists, software engineers and customer support staff.

The Columbus office realistically could grow larger than the San Francisco-area headquarters within a year, CEO Dave Girouard said. The e-lending company has 220 employees in the San Mateo, California, home office today. Columbus could top 500, he said.

“We’re incredibly confident the talent is here,” Girouard said. “Our business is really strong right now, and there’s no reason to think it won’t be in the future.”
