The Instant Group Merges With Coworking Space Marketplace
GLOBAL – Coworker.com, the biggest online marketplace for coworking space, has officially become part of The Instant Group, making the amalgamated platform the top global aggregator for flexible office space, according to a press release published on Cision PR Newswire on Wednesday evening (7 April, SGT).
Coworker.com adds more options for business and individuals to make coworking an integral part of their future workspace strategy.
Established in 2015 by Sam Marks, Coworker has offices in the US, Canada, Spain, and Thailand. It’s a top coworking space marketplace and will add 20,000 locations across 172 countries. In January 2018, the firm bought Coworking Insights, a blog for coworking sector professionals that publishes news, data, and the latest trends in the industry.
“I greatly admire the progress that Coworker made in recent years, expanding the awareness of coworking with 6 million users across the globe. Sam Marks and his team have worked diligently to reflect the choice and variety of service types, experiences and locations for coworking spaces,” said The Instant Group’s Chief Executive Tim Rodber.
“The Coworker platform and its team are great additions to our organization and will accelerate our goal of creating the largest independent marketplace for flexible workspace,” he added.
In March, The Instant Group announced mergers with IWG’s digital assets including Rovva, Worka, Meetingo.com, and Easyoffices.com, in addition to the purchase of Davinci, a meeting room and virtual office specialist.
The Instant Group’s newly boosted marketplace will cater to over 250,000 companies across 175 countries, operating 24/7 through an integrated platform in more than 40 languages. It will consolidate over 30,000 coworking spaces and will offer a range of services to customers. These include membership plans, office booking, on-demand virtual offices, managed offices, and consulting services.
“The office’s role has changed permanently and coworking’s role has come into sharp focus to foster social connection, build community and ensure that people feel part of something bigger. Companies of all sizes are seeing the potential to make coworking a key part of their future workspace strategy,” added Coworker’s Founder Sam Marks.
