iSprout – Coworking Spaces Raises $4M in Pre-Series A Round

 4 months ago    

iSprout Coworking Spaces has raised $4 million in a Pre-Series A round and intends to raise its Series A round of $10 million soon.

Coworking Spaces

The Coworking Enterprise in India is growing exponentially and is set to pass 50 million square ft by 2023. With Covid disrupting the standard practices, companies are opting for a hybrid model of work, coworking spaces are regaining prevalence. A trend that saw a rise in 2018, companies have since begun including these spaces in their real estate strategies.

In the post-pandemic situation, most organizations are opting for affordable and flexible solutions. Coworking Spaces effectively aim to solve this crisis as it is cost-effective. A Coworking Space is an arrangement where various companies share office space and infrastructure, allowing maximum cost savings and convenience. This model works great for startups and SMBs as they don’t have to worry about having to set up a separate office where their limited employees can effectively work from.

According to the Coworkingers report, the impact of the pandemic on the coworking enterprise was most in Hyderabad (down 78% Q2 YoY) and Mumbai (down 63% Q2 YoY), whereas Bangalore was most resistant. Mumbai was the slowest to recover with a 60% drop in demand. However, Bangalore and Hyderabad recovered at a quicker pace with lead flows up by 26% and 9% in 2019, respectively.
