Meghan Dear is the CEO, but you won’t find her alone in an office. She works among her staff at a cluttered desk in the one-big-room Localize office in the hip Mercer Warehouse.

“Problems get solved in the middle of things,” she says. “There’s definitely space to collaborate, and no walls.”

She grew up without walls, too, splitting her childhood between her mom’s commercial greenhouse and her dad’s market garden. “We grew up watching work happen — you see the culmination of your efforts every day.”
