Chicago based Deskpass, one of the most senior on-demand flexible workspaces aggregator in the US, announced plans to merge with Breather, a similar player owned by the US coworking giant Industrious.

Both platforms operate on the US market. However, Industrious started to develop a presence in Europe, lately, with locations in Paris, Brussels and The Netherlands.

Industrious offers flexible terms at nearly 200 locations in more than 65 markets globally. The company seems to look for broadening its flexible workspace offering beyond its own network of operated coworking spaces.

“Over the past two years, Deskpass and Breather have both experienced a more than tenfold surge in bookings” says Sam Rosen, CEO of Deskpass. “Collectively the Deskpass and Breather brands have supported over 500,000 flexible workspace reservations.”

“By simply adding flexible workspace network as the third option, companies now instantly get the facetime and collaboration they want, while employees get the shorter commutes and greater personal control they embraced during the pandemic.”, comment Jamie Hodari and Evan Fain, respectively CEO and General Manager of New Ventures at Industrious.
