What We Believe

At Leasecake, we believe managing a portfolio of leased properties should be easy and accessible. We believe in a world where you don’t worry about missing a lease renewal. And we believe you should never lose track of your stuff again.

How it All Began

In 2015, two guys met for coffee at a diner and talked about the challenges of managing commercial real estate. Jim Bankston was a developer, landlord, and broker. Taj Adhav was a recovering CPA and tech startup veteran immersed in commercial real estate since he was a kid.

Jim shared his business pain points and convinced Taj there should be an app to make them all go away. Energized by the potential, Taj got up from the table, walked out of that breakfast joint in Winter Park, Florida, and immediately… did nothing. For two years.

But Taj never forgot about the idea.

Two years later, in the fall of 2017, he pitched the idea for Leasecake at the Techstars Global Startup event in Orlando. After winning the local award, Leasecake went on to win the Global Showcase in a field of entrepreneurs from 200 cities, 58 countries, and six continents.

So, after winning the competition and realizing they had just founded a company, Taj and Jim started building a team. Taj connected with three colleagues from Channel Intelligence, a previous startup that exited to Google. They stepped up to the plate along with a talented software developer, and the core team was in place.

Over the next 18 months, the six of them parked in Jim’s 300-square-foot office and brought Leasecake to life. By mid-2019, the dev and sales teams grew, and the customer list was dense with recognizable brands.

We’ve come a long way since these humble beginnings. But the mission of Leasecake has never faltered. We work hard every day to provide an easy-to-use software product that helps our customers save time, money, and manage the risk of every missing an important date, dollar or document for any of their locations. 

We all come to work every day with one goal:

To make lease management a piece of cake.
