Space Is The Place

It may be easier than ever to book a place to stay in New York City, but for those of us looking for space for events, meetings, or even shoots, the process has remained far too arduous.

Peerspace is a San Francisco-based short-term meeting space reservations platform that announced a $5 million Series A round Tuesday. The company plans to use much of those funds to power its launch in New York City.

Peerspace’s offerings range from Bel-Air mansions (pool included) to San Francisco woodshop and gallery spaces. Much like Airbnb, hosts list available booking times and users can book entirely online or through Peerspace’s mobile app. A five-star rating system, naturally, is also in place.

Peerspace has grown rapidly in San Francisco and Los Angeles since launching in 2014, boasting almost 1000% year-over-year growth through the first three quarters of last year.

“Our users are telling us they are tired of hosting off-sites at the same uninspired traditional venues over and over again,” Peerspace cofounder Rory Chammas said.

The company’s expansion into New York City, of course, means they’re looking to hire here – aspiring in-market development associate/managers can apply here.

You can book your next event space with Peerspace here.

Now go forth (and book it).
