An online marketplace has been launched for finding hot desk, meeting room and short notice office space.

Hosts on Spare Workspace can list for free and accept bookings from anywhere in real time. with a service fee of up to 10 percent from each booking, or 3-10 percent for PRO accounts applied.

Founder Jake Dimarco said expected users are mostly likely to be freelancers or start-ups who need an affordable and flexible workspace, professional services with a small team, or a business traveller wanting on-demand space to work while in another city.

“They’re looking for the flexibility to change workspaces depending on their circumstances, or for a collaborative environment where they can work with others," he said.

“A hair salon with three unused chairs or a cafe’s kitchen outside of hours could be perfect to list on Spare Workspace as the platform grows.

“Whether you have a meeting room, desk or event space, you can easily share it with others. For our hosts it is free to list, and although SpareWorkspace takes a nominal fee, it remains a cost-effective way to utilise a space that may not otherwise be used. Plus, hosts can manage their growing collection of spare workspaces via our online dashboard. ”

“Our easy to use platform helps businesses every step of the way. From marketing their space to taking payments, Spare Workspace is designed to be a seamless addition to help manage an existing space. Plus, all our hosts can take advantage of on-the-ground support and local knowledge.”

Dimarco said the benefit to the “typical” Spare Workspace user will be the ability to book space from as little as one hour to up to 12 months.




The site launches with the majority of listings focusing on Brisbane and Sydney locations but is expected to expand nationally by the end of the year.

While the current offering focuses on existing co-working space and offices, Dimarco noted there was opportunity to branch into allowing businesses like hair salons and cafes to offer their unused spaces.

Spare Workspace has partnered with Wotso Workspace, Microsoft BizSpark, PIN Payments, Uber and Corporate House.
