30 in Their Thirties: Daniel Haberman // 39


President, Byte & Mortar Offices, Troy
Clients: 50+ // Employees: 2

Combining his legal, hospitality, and real estate expertise, Daniel Haberman launched a flexible workspace business in 2012 targeted to startups, established enterprises, professional firms, and project teams. Recently rated the fourth best co-working space for entrepreneurs by YFS Magazine, Byte & Mortar Offices in Troy offers a range of services that includes private offices, shared workspace for extended or time-sensitive projects, a support staff, office equipment, furniture, secure Wi-Fi, and other amenities. “We offer the same environment as a Class A office building, with the hospitality of a luxury hotel,” says Haberman, president of Byte & Mortar and general counsel of Haberman Productions in Ferndale. “Once we perfect the model, we plan to start expanding with other locations, most likely in 2014.” Growing up in an entrepreneurial family — Haberman’s parents, Sam and Toby, own Haberman Fabrics in Royal Oak along with numerous real estate holdings — proved to be a harbinger of growth. Haberman and his brother, Jeremy, co-founded The Bosco, an upscale lounge on Woodward Avenue in Ferndale, in 2001. They sold that business a decade later (Jeremy owns the Magic Bag, an entertainment venue located just south of The Bosco). “Byte & Mortar was a concept that came to life after a lot of planning and research,” Haberman says. Prices range from a $14 day pass for a co-working project to $599
a month for a furnished, private office. — R.J. King
