MillionSpaces wins multiple awards


Sri Lanka’s sole platform offering space solutions, MillionSpaces is a real-life embodiment of the phrase “Dream Big” and has today evolved as the leading online location booking platform for coworking spaces, hotels, F&B outlets, photoshoot locations, cultural landmarks and more, with over 1,800 registered spaces.

MillionSpaces was the recipient of many accolades at the recently concluded Ingenuity Awards 2021 that recognizes Sri Lanka’s best and upcoming technology innovators, conducted by the Sri Lanka Association for Software Services Companies (SLASSCOM).

The awards won included National Best Product Innovation Award, National Best Startup Runner Up Award, Best Startup Category Award – Western Province and Best Product Innovation Category Award – Western Province.

The company was established by the Founder/CEO of 1 Billion Tech, Prasath Nanayakkara, who was inspired while reading for his Executive MBA at INSEAD France and Singapore. “Seeing global tech firms such as Google and Facebook disrupt the entire world got me thinking that we have to use the resources we have at 1 Billion Tech to revolutionize the market, and thus MillionSpaces was born. We identified an untapped market need for workspaces and decided to offer solutions via a mobile platform – a solution that completely disrupted the market,” he said giving an insight into the beginnings of this innovative venture.

Encouraged by its success in Sri Lanka within a short span of operations, MillionSpaces further expanded to Singapore to offer solutions via a novel business model for the ‘bleisure’ (business/leisure) market. “Let’s say you were looking for a poolside location at a five-star hotel to work for a couple of hours and then unwind for the evening, our platform helps you find and book the perfect space to suit your requirements. These are services which have not been made possible before,” explains Prasath.

Today, armed with an international team of over 10 employees, including a top management team from Singapore, Sri Lanka, France and the US, the company has become a versatile platform for individuals, teams and organizations to rethink flexible working, positioning itself as the perfect platform to find spaces and book them online – a statement they have proven time and time again.

The Head of Marketing at MillionSpaces, Azmina Rasheed reaffirmed, “There has never been a stronger moment for flexible workspaces and its accessibility online. We’re thrilled by the success of MillionSpaces,”. Vishmi Perera, who leads Sales for MillionSpaces, while discussing how the firm advocates the concept of co-working in Sri Lanka said: “We take off the burden from individuals and businesses to find and call locations, searching for ‘free’ times to place a booking. Our platform cuts off unnecessary communication and replaces it with convenience and efficiency.”
