JLL, a professional services and investment management company specializing in real estate, has invested in the Hubble company, an online search engine for coworking office spaces such as WeWork, as well as companies that have free tables to rent.

JLL is betting on flexible offices. The US giant has led a round of four million pounds in Hubble, a British company that is defined as the "Booking of office space."

The company operates as a search engine in which you can rent office space from coworking groups such as WeWork, as well as companies that have free tables for rent. Hubble charges a commission for each transaction.

The company is backed by James Caan, a British-Pakistani businessman known in his country as an investor in the BBC Dragons' Den program. "The traditional rental model for ten years and with high entry costs is no longer adequate," Tushar Agarwal, CEO of the startup stated. "Companies want to be able to move from one office to another in a matter of days, and we can offer them that."
