Co-working space company Huckletree has announced a £4.5m (€5m) funding round with investment manager Meyer Bergman.

This latest investment follows a £2.4m Series A round of funding in 2015, and will support the London-based workspace accelerator’s growth in 2018.

Huckletree joins Meyer Bergman’s investment portfolio alongside the marketplace for retail space company Appear Here, and app commerce company, POQ Commerce.

"Meyer Bergman’s exceptional experience perfectly complements our focus, making them the ideal partner as we continue to scale our brand.

We are excited to be welcoming such an experienced team to our company," Gabriela Hersham, CEO and founder of Huckletree, said.

Huckletree, which will next month open a co-working space in Dublin, places a strong focus on curating communities of disruptive startups, scaleups and global brands.

The Dublin space will mark the group’s first international expansion, and bring their global member count to 2,000.

“Having now surpassed 100,000 sq ft of space across four locations, we’re actively looking into several locations across Europe and beyond including Copenhagen, Barcelona and Tel Aviv. Huckletree’s focus continues to be finding inspiring locations for future workspaces and tripling our membership base within 12 months," Andrew Lynch, Huckletree COO and co-founder, said.
