PeerSpace, Inc., a San Francisco, CA-based peer-to-peer marketplace for professionals to gain access to productive spaces, raised $1.5m in seed funding.
Backers included Structure Capital, Ran Makavy, Michael Horwitz, Ron Pizzuti and other angel investors.
The company intends to use the funds to expand to other major metropolitan areas, as well as hiring key positions within both development and sales.
Founded in 2013 by Matt Bendett, Head of Marketing and Acquisition, and Rony Chammas, CEO, and launched in March 2014, PeerSpace offers short-term access to hundreds of creative and inspiring workspaces focusing on three main categories: off-site meeting, event, and production. Guests can filter, discover, and book their ideal space directly through the app while hosts can maximize the use of their space, earn money, and expand their network by listing on the PeerSpace marketplace.
The service is currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area with individual and corporate clients including LinkedIn, Instacart, General Assembly, Campari, Fitmob, Dinner Lab, and many more.
The PeerSpace App is available for free from the App Store or at www.appstore.com/peerspace.
