Knotel co-founder Amol Sarva is an outspoken competitor of WeWork, the topdog of the coworking space world, and is showing no signs of slowing down.
“In an interview with Commercial Observer, Sarva said flexible workspace provider Knotel “will be bigger than [WeWork] in the next 15 months,” citing his company’s rapid growth, and the fact that Knotel already has a third of WeWork’s footprint in New York, spread among more properties.”
Although Knotel is still growing, the company is making big moves having just recently purchased startup 42Floors with the plans of transforming the way office properties are listed.
The company is on its way to debuting its blockchain listing service, coined Baya. This endeavor promises to increase lease listings transparency, with the hopes of having all office properties searchable and indexed on Baya.
Until then, Knotel is in the midst of a very competitive field. Other coworking firm Regus recently joined Knotel in accusing WeWork of foul play.
