Partnership Offers Hybrid Companies Flexibility to Book Workspaces On Demand

WorkSocial, a female- and minority-owned coworking space located in Jersey City that offers private, shared, and virtual offices and flexible solutions that match the individual needs of entrepreneurs and businesses, has partnered with FlexSpace, a platform that empowers employees to discover, book, and manage on-demand workspaces. Flexspace allows the flexibility to book meeting rooms, private offices, and shared workspaces as needed, with no commitment or upfront cost. Businesses, employees and entrepreneurs can now secure space at any of WorkSocial’s headquarters in Jersey City, through Flexspace’s booking platform.

“I am proud to partner with Flexspace and make WorkSocial’s coworking, private offices, virtual offices and conference rooms even more accessible to business professionals through the easy-to-use platform,” said Natasha Mohan, CEO and co-founder of WorkSocial. “With more employees shifting to hybrid and remote working, we wanted to make sure our premium professional services were available to them on-demand, in real-time.”

Former WeWork executives Eyal Lasker and Justin Law founded Flexspace in 2020 to meet the booming needs of scaling startups and established companies to support hybrid workforces amid face-to-face contact limitations spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic. While social distancing and shelter-in-place orders have subsided amid vaccine rollout and decreasing infection rates across the country, the hybrid and remote working models have endured across various business industries.

The corporate platform was rolled out in May 2022 on the heels of the company’s announcement of its $6 million seed funding round. Spearheaded by M13, with participation from R-Squared Ventures, Magenta Venture Partners, and individual investors, including former and current Silicon Valley executives from Uber and WeWork, allowed the company to expand its network of operators in the U.S. as well as develop new corporate solutions.

Flexspace works by connecting directly to a coworking company’s inventory and seamlessly delivering it to employees looking for workspaces in real-time. Through this model, employers no longer have to hold a long-term contract for a set number of workspaces in a set number of locations. Instead, they can tap into the platform to secure various types of spaces in different areas to meet their needs as they arise. Flexspace allows businesses and employees to search, price, book and process services while allowing coworking operators and real estate owners to monetize their unused inventory.
