As more companies move to hybrid workplace models, many are contemplating how to keep remote employees engaged, happy and productive. WorkChew, a startup that turns hotels and restaurants into on-demand flexible workspaces, has raised $2.5 million in an oversubscribed seed round.
Harlem Capital led the deal, which included participation from Wilshire Lane Partners, Invictus Advisory Group, Techstars Ventures and RW Capital Investments Inc. The deal also had individual investments from strategic angels including Kabbage co-founder Kathryn Petralia, Etsy co-founder Chris Maguire, Kyle Tibbits of Paradox Capital and Alex Chan, formerly of UBER.
WorkChew, founded by Maisha Burt in late 2018, allows remote professionals to find and book workspace in U.S. cities and suburbs. Membership is often covered by employers but can also be purchased by individuals.
WorkChew is currently in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Chicago. It will open soon in New York, Atlanta, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles and Denver.
