Why pint-size coworking service Kinglet sees opportunity in DC

Launched just a few weeks ago in the District, the Baltimore-based startup is ready for long-term expansion here. Here's why.

At Kinglet“we’re Baltimore guys,” cofounder Jeff Jacobson said to DC. But after closing a half-a-million dollar round last year, the startup has decided it is ready to tackle the nation’s capital.
“A lot of the national trends hold true” in D.C., said Jacobson. Particularly those that benefit a company like Kinglet, a platform that facilitates small office space rental deals for startups and creative professionals. For one, the region has a young, educated and hungry workforce.
“Everyone wants to be their own CEO,” said Jacobson.
The Baltimore-based Kinglet has also found “amazing traction on the supply side” here and aims to open up a satellite office in the District before the summer.
Kinglet, which offers four types of space, from the open space desk to the private office suite, has currently locked in 100 spots in various D.C. offices and coworking spaces.
The company launched in D.C. in late March, and in Baltimore in September of last year.
