Desana Closes $7.4M Funding Round


Desana, an Edinburgh, Scotland, UK-based B2B global hybrid workspace platform, closed a $7.4m funding round.

The round was co-led by PT1 – PropTech1 Ventures and JLL Spark Global Ventures, with participation from original pre-seed investor Techstart Ventures, BGF and Groundbreak Ventures.

The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations and its business reach, particularly in the US, where they see significant opportunity to expand their list of enterprise customers, which includes Github, Twilio, Sonos, Elastic and Splunk, amongst others.

Led by Michael Cockburn, CEO, Desana offers employers on-demand access to workspace in over 600 cities across more than 60 countries. For the first time, companies are able to provide their employees with access to workspace anywhere in the world, while only paying for the exact hours that workspace is used.

Companies can also integrate their own offices onto the platform, offering a single solution to the complex task of managing global hybrid working patterns and allowing the tracking of accurate workspace data to support long-term real estate decisions.
