Welcome Group specializes in single-tenant office, lab, industrial and manufacturing facilities, and also offers Build to Suit and Design Build services for new properties."

The 41-year-old company also raised a $300 million private equity round earlier this year.

In other local funding news, consumer lending company Spruce (formerly Apartment Butler) announced a $3 million funding round on July 17, led by Fitz Gate Ventures.

According to Crunchbase, "Spruce is a mobile-first concierge platform for apartments. We partner with communities to offer home services to residents, such as pet sitting, housekeeping, laundry and dry cleaning. By leveraging the scale of larger communities, we are able to provide residents with better service and prices than they could achieve on their own."
