Saltbox, an Atlanta, GA-based co-working company for entrepreneurs who need warehouse space, raised $3.2m in first venture capital funding.
The round was led by Village Global with participation from MetaProp, Arena Ventures and Kapor Capital as well as a number of leading angel investors.
The company intends to use the funds to launch its first location, which will open in November and will be located in Atlanta at 1345 Seaboard Industrial Blvd. NW, Atlanta, Georgia, 30318.
Led by Tyler Scriven, co-founder and CEO, Saltbox is a 27,000 sq. ft space opening this fall in Atlanta’s Upper Westside, which combines co-working with co-warehousing. The environment provides a place for Atlanta’s “Concrete Class” to build community and collaboration. The Concrete Class is a diverse set of entrepreneurs that includes importers and exporters, distributors, makers and e-commerce operators.
The company provides a range of options from community memberships to private “warehouse suites,” including loading dock access, high-speed Wi-Fi, warehouse equipment, a photography stage, conference rooms, enterprise security, temperature controlled environment, common areas and quiet booths.
