‘ClassPass of Coworking’: Deskpass Wants to Make Shared Spaces Even More Flexible in Dallas-Fort Worth

Deskpass provides users a streamlined menu of coworking and meeting spaces to choose from. The app and membership service is now available in North Texas with more than 130 locations, including Common Desk, CraftWork Coffee Co., and Worksuites.

It’s no secret that coworking is consistently climbing in Dallas-Fort Worth. Last year, Regus predicted coworking will contribute $4.2 trillion annually to the U.S. economy by 2030. And Dallas is at the front of the pack—a 2019 Colliers International report put Dallas as the fastest growing city for coworking nationwide and a new CBRE report showed DFW as the country’s fifth largest shared office market.

A new app and membership service called Deskpass says it wants to capitalize on that ever-growing trend with a move into one of the top coworking cities in the country.

“In today’s market with growing demand for flexible work options and so many to choose from, it can be challenging to find a coworking space that fits your needs and personality,” Sam Rosen, Deskpass’ co-founder and CEO, said in a statement. “Deskpass allows you to try multiple locations without having to make a pricey long-term commitment.”

Chicago-headquartered Deskpass was founded in 2015 as an affordable way to access the continuously expanding network of shared workspaces and conference rooms. It calls itself the “ClassPass of coworking”: Deskpass provides a streamlined menu so freelancers, remote workers, and budding entrepreneurs can conveniently select a niche space tailored to their needs, no matter the day (it’s recommended to branch out and try new places).

“While some people are happy to work at home, many prefer a more active, inspiring and communal environment,” Rosen said. “Deskpass is the perfect transition tool for folks to get out of the house or the coffee shop and into a more professional, work-focused environment.”

With its recent move into Dallas-Fort Worth, Deskpass now locally has 31 coworking and 102 hourly meeting spaces available for booking on its website or mobile app. That includes Deep Ellum’s Common Desk, CraftWork Coffee Co. in Fort Worth, and Worksuites.

But, users actually have access to Deskpass joints in more than a dozen cities across the U.S.—not just at their home base—and can filter locations by proximity, amenities, parking, and more before choosing.

New subscribers are offered a free ‘mini’ trial plan that allows up to four locations to be used a month prior to becoming a full-time member; after the trial, the plan is $49 a month. There’s also a part-time plan that’s $99/month for eight visits and a $199/month full-time plan for 20. Unused days roll over to the next month.

Beyond coworking, Deskpass allows users to browse and book conference rooms, private offices, training centers, and more by the hour. The intent is to take the “legwork” out of searching for a meeting place.

“We partner with a wide variety of providers, from local independent coworking spaces all the way up to multicity networks,” Rosen said, “making it a fantastic way to explore coworking and connect with a vibrant community of other remote workers.”
