PeerSpace has raised $1.5 million to expand its Airbnb-for-workspaces

37 sec read

PeerSpace today announced a $1.5 million raise after launching its Airbnb-for-workspaces service to the public earlier this year. PeerSpace, currently only available in San Francisco, places emphasis on offering “inspiring, creative, and inviting spaces,” according to cofounder Matt Bendett. The company claims it has already won over noteworthy corporate users, including LinkedIn, Instacart, and General Assembly.

Airbnb has built a huge platform that allows users to rent out their rooms and homes to people looking for a place to stay. But what about when businesses want to find interesting spots to hold meetings, brainstorming sessions, or team offsites? For that, they have a new startup called PeerSpace. Billing itself as a sort of Airbnb for creative spaces, PeerSpace has built a marketplace that allows businesses with unique places to monetize them when they’re not in use. Think dance studios or art galleries or photography studios that go unused a couple of times a week and could be rented out to teams that want to get out of their cube farms for a day.
