Rent out a coworking space for a couple of hours, or for a few months.

Vancouver-based startup ShareDesk has claimed to be the ‘Airbnb for workspaces.’ Mobile workers are able to search for a shared working space, or rent out a fixed desk in an office or studio. The idea isn’t a new one as it stems from the concept of coworking, where freelancers can work together in an office as opposed to working from home or in a cafe. The environment creates a platform for individuals to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and utilize resources.

Kia Rahmani, co-founder and CEO of ShareDesk, saw the opportunity when he was a mobile worker and started to lease and rent out desk space to others. He explains that:

This goes beyond renting a desk, it’s all about creating and engaging a community of like-minded professionals, I like to think of it as a physical professional network. It creates this serendipitous opportunity for other people who want to connect and join a community, not just a desk.

Currently, the website service is free to join and features coworking spaces from international cities. Users aren’t just restricted to renting out desks, but also conference rooms. They can rent out a space for just a couple of hours, or for a few months.
