Co-working space startup Huckletree raises £4.5m in second fundraising round

Co-working space startup Huckletree has announced a funding round of £4.5m with investment manager Meyer Bergman.

Huckletree joins the London-based real estate investment group's portfolio alongside retail space marketplace Appear Here and app company POQ Commerce.

The latest round of investment follows a £2.4m Series A fundraising in 2015, and will support the London based workspace accelerator’s growth in 2018, the company said.

Gabriela Hersham, chief executive and founder of Huckletree, said the partnership with Meyer Bergman leaves the company "well positioned for 2018 and beyond".

"Meyer Bergman’s exceptional experience ​perfectly ​complements our focus​, making them the ideal partner as we continue to scale our brand. ​​We are ​excited to be welcoming such an experienced team to our company," she said.

Andrew Lynch, co-founder and chief operating officer at Huckletree said the group is "actively looking into several locations across Europe and beyond", and named Copenhagen, Barcelona and Tel Aviv as potential new sites.

"Huckletree’s focus continues to be finding inspiring locations for future workspaces and tripling our membership base within 12 months," Lynch said.

Huckletree currently operates in Shoreditch, Clerkenwell and White City, where launched last month. The group is due to open its first international location in Dublin next month, bringing their global member count to 2000.
