Chinese co-working space provider ucommune (previously UrWork) today announced that it has made a strategic investment in smaller rival Workingdom.

As per the agreement, Workingdon will now merge with ucommune. This will add to ucommune’s established portfolio another 20 locations, four product lines, 50,000 sq.m., 500 members and 15,000 registered members, as per a press statement.

This is ucommune’s fourth such deal in 2018: in the first quarter, ucommune acquired and merged with New Space (in January), and Woo Space and Wedo (in March).

“Workingdom’s ecosystem of co-working pivots around working, living and consumption and has created an internet-based platform combining physical terminal, service platform, content creation and resources. Through the merge, Workingdom complements ucommune’s strengths in space design, community operation, data management and community culture,” said Dr. Mao Daqing, Founder and Chairman of ucommune.
