SHANGHAI, November 1, 2016 –Gaw Capital Partners today announced the

coworking spaces through one of the funds under its management.

The new expansion of capital will be used to finance the opening of

Hub locations (approximately 150,000 square meters & 30,000 members) across

China, Hong Kong, Singapore and other key cities in southeast Asia. Coworking

commitment and track record in China. The lifestyle and hospitality approach of

positions as market leaders in the region,” said Humbert Pang, Managing Principal
