On-demand coworking platform Deskimo launched in Singapore, Hong Kong

YC-backed on-demand coworking marketplace Deskimo has recently announced the launch of a mobile application that provides enterprises with flexible workspace alternatives across Hong Kong and Singapore.

Offices such as The Executive Centre, Arcc Spaces, The Hive, and Garage Society, as well as alternative spaces like Changi Lounge and Furama Hotel, are among the workspaces mentioned on the app.

Employees will be able to work from a network of over 30 locations across Singapore with Deskimo. Businesses can also use the platform to enable employees to work from home, without the necessity to commute to work.

Jonathan Soh, Managing Director of Deskimo, expressed the new normal brought about by COVID-19 made the professionals realize that their homes might not be the best place to work.

Deskimo Co-Founder Christian Mischler stated many businesses have decided to cancel some of their office leases in 2020 and do not plan to recoup these fixed expenditures. Deskimo is an asset-light solution that gives businesses and their employees a lot more flexibility, he added.

For the record, Deskimo was founded in February by Christian Mischler, Co-Founder of Foodpanda, and Raphael Cohen, the former head of Asia for Rocket Internet. The two co-founded an on-demand booking app, HotelQuickly, which they eventually sold in 2017.

Switch, Booqed, WorkBuddy, and Flydesk are among the other on-demand coworking space apps available in Deskimo's current markets.

However, Mischler claims that its primary competitors are large F&B businesses such as Starbucks, which are easier to locate. Deskimo, he added, is more effective for working professionals, who are promised a table and do not have to worry about looking for outlets or Wi-Fi quality.

The Singapore-based firm expects to add other services on top of coworking to give it a competitive edge in addition to expanding into other markets soon.
