Start-up WeWork has raised about $760 million of new funding, according to filings with the Delaware Department of State.
The company's valuation now stands at $20 billion, unnamed sources told Forbes, which previously reported the funding round. That would be higher than the $16.9 billion valuation last estimated by CB Insights.
WeWork declined to comment on the filing.
WeWork, considered a so-called sharing economy start-up, aims to let companies share a working space instead of taking on the overhead of a permanent office. As of the end of 2016, WeWork had 110 locations across the world. The start-up has said it plans to expand in cities like London, Beijing, Paris, and Detroit this year.
CEO Adam Neumann said last month that WeWork is generating $1 billion a year in revenue and will launch an initial public offering at some point, according to Reuters. WeWork members pay an average of $650 a month, Reuters reported.
WeWork one of many unicorns — start-ups valued at $1 billion or more — to eye a public offering as the private market cools from its peak between 2014 and 2016. Venture capital investing is in the midst of a "self-correction" period, according to a new report from the National Venture Capital Association and PitchBook.
"There's optimism of a strong year ahead for venture-backed IPO activity," the report said this week.
