Share Your Office (Bureaux A Partager), a Paris, France-based startup which provides a marketplace to connect freelancers and small companies with unused office space, raised €2m in funding.
Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC), the largest public bank in France, provided the funding.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its development in France, consolidate its teams, to strengthen its brand communication and prepare its international growth.
Founded in Paris in late 2012 by Clement Alteresco, SYO/Bureaux A Partager has built a marketplace to connect companies that had spare office space with startups looking for desks with flexibility.
The company’s LINK platform, scheduled for launch in 2017, will enable coworking spaces on its marketplace to manage all aspects of operating and maintaining the space, scale their business across multiple locations and retain a good experience for tenants without significant staff increases.
The platform will allow space operators to view the current individuals who are located within a space and to handle all advanced reservations, billing, and contracts, to edit and change contracts as need be without the process of going through a PDF editor.
The company currently employs 30 people.
