Founded in 2015, Urban Place operates two coworking locations in Tel Aviv and is set to open a location in Paris this year. In May 2017 the company raised $12 million in funding. Urban Place previously announced intentions to open locations in Berlin, London, and Madrid.
Israel, where WeWork CEO and co-founder Adam Neumann had spent his formative years, has sprouted numerous shared office real estate companies in recent years, including Labs, Be All, Ayeka, Mixer, and Mindspace Ltd.
In February, Mixer raised $40 million in a round led by Puma Brandenburg, the investment firm headed by British businessman Howard Shore. The company, whose corporate name is TLV Lounge Ltd., launched in 2016.
