Revolut has today announced an exciting new collaboration with leading shared workspace provider, WeWork, as the fast-growing fintech continues to build out its business offering and take on the big banks.
The new tie-up builds on Revolut’s current business product and reaffirms their commitment to helping new businesses get off the ground. The partnership will provide Revolut for Business customers with 3 months free hot-desk space at a WeWork of their choice*. The knowledge and creativity that is shared in these communal spaces is one of the biggest benefits of working in a collaborative workspace.
Revolut for Business has signed up over 80,000 businesses to date, ranging from freelancers to FTSE companies. One of the many businesses benefitting from Revolut’s collaboration with WeWork is ONLOAN, a new startup in the fast-growing clothing rental market.
Tamsin Chislett, Co-Founder of ONLOAN, explained that they needed a workspace for their growing clothing rental business and Revolut for Business enabled to get them started straight away in WeWork 145 City Road:
“I was already a big fan of Revolut for Business. As a new business, it’s saved us huge amounts of time and money. Revolut’s collaboration with WeWork provided our team with a perfect base to build ONLOAN. The facilities are incredible and the environment ideal for networking with like minded entrepreneurs. Oh, and the coffee’s great too!”
Jamie Devlin, Head of Business Development at Revolut said: “We’re delighted that through our exciting collaboration with WeWork, companies and freelancers using our next generation business accounts will be able to build and grow in WeWork’s beautiful workspaces, saving so much time and money in the process.”
The London-based fintech signs up hundreds of businesses per day and expects that number to grow significantly as they expand into new global markets in early 2019 with launches in the US, Canada, Singapore, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
Revolut for Business is continuing to add further products and services to its offering, including a much anticipated end-to-end acquiring solution. Businesses can already open an account in 24 currencies, with free international payments, local accounts, seamless corporate cards and an Open API for those looking to automate their business banking.
