Coworker Raises $500k in Seed Funding to Connect People With Coworking Communities in 100+ Countries

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - San Francisco, California - Oct 17, 2016 - Coworker, the community platform for coworking spaces, today announced that it closed a $500k seed funding round led by Jeff Natland, the founder of payments giant Neteller and veteran tech investor (including Ring, Flexport and Earnest).

Described in the press as “TripAdvisor for coworking spaces”, Coworker is a global platform that provides member reviews and other information for consumers about coworking spaces around the world.

Six prominent technology entrepreneurs and investors participated in the round, including Rob Kall, serial entrepreneur with a recent exit to RealPage Inc, and Chinese real estate mogul Chen Chao. 

“As the number of freelance and remote or flexible workers increases dramatically each year, the demand for coworking spaces is skyrocketing as they seek out communities to be part of,”  said Leanne Beesley, Co-founder and CEO of Coworker. “This investment supports our mission of growing the global coworking community by connecting people, coworking spaces and networks.”

Since launching in October 2015, Coworker has collected community generated content for 3000 coworking spaces across 700+ cities in 82 countries, with over 5000 member tips and reviews. Verified coworking spaces have the option to activate Marketing features on their page including “Schedule a Tour” and “Free Day Pass” booking functions.

“We are excited to have the support of experienced investors and tech entrepreneurs like Jeff Natland and Rob Kall. This strategic investment will help us to further develop our technology and enable us to grow even faster,” said Sam Marks, Co-founder of Coworker and investor in multiple startups including Glints, Big Tree Solutions and SmartMat.

With a distributed team collaborating from coworking spaces in multiple countries across South East Asia, Europe, North America and South America, Coworker is pioneering the remote-work movement and proving itself as a case study for alternatives to the “Silicon Valley startup” model.
