Founded in 2015 by Amit Ramani, Awfis has evolved from just being a coworking network to a tech-enabled workspace solutions platform, catering to freelancers, startups, SMEs, large corporates, and MNCs. It has raised a total funding of nearly $90 Mn till date. It competes against the likes of WeWork, 91Springboard, OYO’s Innov8, BHive, among others.

The development comes at a time when a number of new-age tech companies are looking to go public. Earlier today, B2B travel portal Travel Boutique Online or TBO Tek’s shares listed at a premium of 55% on the NSE. Meanwhile, insurtech unicorn Digit’s IPO also opened today.
