knotel raises $25m to expand its “headquarters as a service” approach to office


knotel announced today that it has raised $25 million in series a funding.founded in 2015, the company offers what co-founder and ceo amol sarva described as “headquarters as a service” — a flexible office space that can be customized for each tenant while also growing or shrinking as needed.this might sound like it’s addressing the same need as wework and other coworking spaces, but sarva (who was previously co-founder at virgin mobile) argued that knotel is “not coworking.” it’s not just a way to rent out a few desks, but rather to build your company’s office without the risks of a long-term lease.“it’s a culture-coded environment — it’s your spot,” sarva said.this should appeal to startups, where headcount might double or triple one year, and then drop again the next.
