Knotel: The Airbnb Of Commercial Real Estate | PYMNTS.com

Knotel: The Airbnb Of Commercial Real Estate | PYMNTS.com: Knotel co-founder and CEO Amol Sarva has�had�a full life in tech. Apart from his current venture, Sarva is also the co-founder of Halo Neuroscience, Peek and Virgin Mobile USA – and those are just his better-known�ventures.�He founded his first firm when he was still a philosophy student at Columbia University, a web development firm called Netatomic.

In�the course of founding all of those businesses, one of the many frustrations he faced was finding decent office space�that could flex with his ventures’ growth and changing workspace needs.

“The�constant need of�a�start-up�is to be able to grow, shrink, grow again – move and pivot,” Sarva told Karen Webster for this week’s edition of The Matchmaker Is In. “But that’s�very hard to find in the�current office space�market. We�perpetually found ourselves either sharing someone else’s space, or having other firms sharing ours.”
