inSITE helps Gahanna Creekside Grow

Fintech company BillGO to open new Gahanna office, add 50 jobs

Gahanna’s Creekside development has landed a fintech company promising 50 jobs.

Fort Collins, Colorado-based BillGO, which developed a bill payment platform that connects institutions and consumers and allows for secure transactions, has signed a lease for 9,000 square feet pf space at 101 Mill St. in the Creekside development.

The company will move in this summer, bringing 50 jobs to the site.

“BillGO was attracted to Gahanna because of its family friendly environment, beautiful parks and outdoor spaces, and the opportunity it offers for business growth,” CEO Dan Holt said in a statement.

Holt founded the company in 2015 with chief technology officer Kelly Seidl and it has expanded quickly. It doubled its headcount with 100 hires in 2020 across its Colorado and Redmond, Washington offices as its user base has expanded to more than 8,000 financial institutions and 30 million customers.

Late last year, Huntington Bank signed a deal to use BillGO technology for electronic bill payments in its own evolving digital banking programs.

Just after that, our sister paper Colorado Inno reported the company had raised $41.6 million as part of a $60 million equity funding round.

The company has posted jobs for software engineers in Columbus in addition to remote jobs for product managers and other roles.

Christopher Potts and Taylor Fanté with Colliers International manage leasing for Creekside Plaza, which has asking rates of $10 per square foot triple-net.

“BillGO is an ideal anchor tenant for the property and will create dozens of high-quality jobs in the area, while also supporting on-site retail options at the property,” said Daniel Hakakian, who owns the Creekside development.

The development has continued to see steady demand for space and has a few other suites available, according to Colliers.

Jennifer Syx, interim director of economic development for Gahanna, said the city sought to attract an office tenant that would diversify its employment base.
