NEW YORK, April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Loosecubes, a global workspace sharing community, announced today the addition of its 1,000th space, making it the largest network of its kind. Loosecubes now connects its members with spaces in 224 cities in 29 countries on 4 continents.
Quietly gaining momentum since a soft launch last year, Loosecubes is backed by Accel Partners, Battery Ventures and private individuals. Loosecubes enables business owners to share their extra workspace with independent professionals by the day, week, or month. Adding a space to the community is currently free, as is reserving a workspace or "loosecube." Space hosts set the price and the terms of each arrangement.
Coworking opportunities on the site currently include BatchBlue Software's Rhode Island "BatchHaus," a private island in Panama, and Loosecubes' own Brooklyn headquarters. "We provide space for free to rails programmers, designers and other entrepreneurs," said Founder & CEO Campbell McKellar. "We've hired several people this way for short term projects. And the best part about it is working together evolves naturally from conversations we have around the office. It's networking that doesn't feel forced. We're just making friends who happen to have skills and insight that are highly relevant to our business."
Over the coming weeks, Loosecubes will be adding more features to better connect travelers and independent professionals with "loosecubes." "Our goal is to help our members use connections to make smart decisions about where they work and the people they work with," said McKellar. "By bringing online connections into the real world, we're helping to create experiences that can lead to new jobs, partnerships, referrals, and friendships. It's about so much more than finding a desk."
Loosecubes is a global workspace sharing community that connects entrepreneurs, independent workers, and business travelers who need professional and flexible workspace with other members who have empty desks -- or "loosecubes." More information is available at http://www.loosecubes.com.
