By the time we were all popping the corks last year, UberOffices had raised more than $14 million in second-round funding, according to a press release.
It was on Dec. 31 that the McLean-based network of coworking spaces sealed the deal led by MRP Realty and Current Yield with Participation Fund, a return investor.
“With the incredible surge in popularity of coworking office spaces, this is an industry with incredible growth potential,” said UberOffices founder and CEO Raymond Rahbar in the release. “We plan to expand our presence and continue to provide members with low-cost, hassle-free office solutions in an environment that fosters collaboration and networking.”
As Rahbar told Technical.ly DC in October, the company is preparing to open up spaces in three new area locations: Tysons, Logan Circle and Clarendon.
But with the new influx of cash, he’s now looking beyond the DMV. UberOffices plans to open several coworking spaces in Philadelphia and Chicago in mid-2015, and other metropolitan areas by year’s end.
Already, UberOffices has over 1,000 members in its four locations in and around D.C.
