Jarvo, the self-styled Airbnb for work, is ready to revolutionise remote working after hitting its Seedrs investment target in just 42 seconds, smashing the previous record of 96 seconds set by Monzo Bank in 2016.
Through its platform and app, Jarvo aims to help householders generate extra income by making unused, work-ready residential space available to remote workers in their area. Founder Daniel Hillman said: “The traditional office space is dead, and while co-working spaces have opened up a world of collaboration, they also bring a host of challenges with them. They’re rigid, expensive and require lengthy commutes.
Work in the future needs to be decentralised, diverse and truly sustainable.” Since it was founded in 2001, more than 1,000 homeowners have signed up to list their spare space on the platform; more than 13,500 users are waiting to discover new workspaces in their area. www.seedrs.com/jarvo/coming-soon
