Deskbookers, is a Dutch work and meeting place booking platform, which got €1.5 million in seed funding in December 2015. The capital comes from Germany’s Point Nine Capital and a number of angel investors, including former Booking.com CMO Arthur Kosten and former CEO of Emesna.nl Marcel Beemsterboer.
The Deskbookers platform allows workers and freelancers to search for and book locations in real time to work at or hold meetings, at an hourly rate, while users can review and rate spaces. At the moment of the announcement, the startup claimed it processed more than 7,000 bookings a month.
The service is currently available in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany and counts Microsoft, T-Mobile, and Uber among its customers.
Deskbookers, was founded in 2013, and this was their first investment round.
