Client Success: WorkChew Announces $2.5M Series Seed Funding Round

HMB would like to congratulate WorkChew and its co-founders, Maisha Burt and Allyson McDougal on a successful funding round. WorkChew, a startup that turns hotels and restaurants into on-demand flexible workspaces, raised $2.5 million.

With WorkChew, company employees can access workspaces wherever they are: whether in an urban corridor or a suburb outside of a major city. Membership is often covered by employers but can also be purchased by individuals. WorkChew is currently in Washington DC, Philadelphia, Chicago and will open soon in New York, Atlanta, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles and Denver.

"WorkChew is a solution that means less miles traveled for the employee, fewer dollars spent by the company on more expensive co-working space, and incremental revenue for hospitality partners," CEO Maisha Burt said. The new funding will be used to build out the team, product development and marketing. Burt and co-founder Allyson McDougal believe in and are driven by supporting people in achieving their goals.

WorkChew was represented by HMB’s Venture Capital and Emerging Companies Team, led by Corporate Partner, James L. Jerue, Corporate Associate Payal J. Patel and Of Counsel Attorney Casey E. Rivard.
