Riveter raises $15 mn, US-based female-centric coworking startup The Riveter has announced that it raised $15 million in a Series A funding round led by Alpha Edison. It reportedly plans to open 100 female-forward coworking spaces in the US by 2022. “We want to redefine…work for women and we want everyone to be part of it,” Founder and CEO Amy Nelson said.
But the Seattle-based startup has differentiated itself by providing amenities, programming, and other membership perks geared toward female professionals. It now has more than 2,000 members across five locations in Seattle and Los Angeles — that’s up from 700 in March. The company, which is open to all genders (25 percent of members are men), aims to open eight locations in 2019 — including Texas and New York City — and reach 100 by 2022.
“This will fuel our growth and enable us to bring our mission of equity in the workplace to everyone, everywhere,” The Riveter CEO Amy Nelson wrote in a Facebook post about the round.
