Daysk helps professionals work remote by discovering and booking the best place to work from in real time. We offer a network of curated spaces and a simplified management solution. Users can find and book with a few taps, spaces can manage orders seamlessly via their Dashboard. Billing is automatic, online.
By 2020, 50% of professionals will work remote. In the United States, 30% of the workforce is already freelance. In Europe, 16% of active people are working outside an office, permanently or more than twice a week.
Working remote means less commute time, less cars on the roads, more time with you family and friends. For companies it’s an opportunity to boost happiness at work and productivity. For local communities, it’s a chance to increase business connexions and sustainable local business centres. By promoting mobility, we want to help people connect and share knowledge while improving their day to day.
About the Company, its history
The idea started buzzing in our heads in 2015. Julien was a freelance consultant in need of meeting rooms and offices on-demand inbetween clients visits. Ben was working remote for a tech start-up in Cordoba and felt like he needed to get out of home but with flexibility. Not full time coworking. We got together to built a prototype and tested the idea of an app that could aggregate desks and with an easy booking feature, Uber style.
During the summer, the test proved to be positive enough to decide to start full time on the project, and we started in september 2016.
At the end of 2016 we delivered our first bookings through the app. We worked full speed in the beginning of 2017, and are right now expanding over Spain.
