Co-working space provider Huckletree has raised £4.5m from privately held real estate investment management firm Meyer Bergman.

The news comes after Huckletree closed a £2.4m Series A in 2015.

According to the company, the new funding will be used to accelerate growth.

Commenting on the news, Gabriela Hersham, chief executive and founder of Huckletree, said the strategic deal with Meyer Bergman left the business “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 added.

Huckletree currently runs spaces in London’s Shoreditch, Clerkenwell and White City – where it opened last month.

The firm is also set to open its first international venue in Dublin next month, bringing its total global member count to 2000.

Huckletree’s co-founder and COO Andrew Lynch added: “Having now surpassed 100,000 sq ft of space across four locations, we’re actively looking into several locations across Europe and beyond including Copenhagen, Barcelona and Tel Aviv.

“Huckletree’s focus continues to be finding inspiring locations for future workspaces and tripling our membership base within 12 months.”
