WeWork is the platform for creators, providing hundreds of thousands of members around the world with space, community, & services that enable them to do what they love & build their life's work. Our mission is to create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living, & our own team members are central to that goal.

We are creating software for physical space that uses data & technology at each point in the building process, such that it can make better sourcing decisions, improve its designs, build faster & smarter, & ultimately improve the lives of the people working within its buildings. Our state of the art technologies & dedication to technological innovation are key reasons why WeWork has been able to scale from operating one workspace location to more than 210 in just over eight years.

The mission of WeWork Labs is to make WeWork the long-term friend & partner to early stage startups, helping them fulfill their destiny, & to power all organizations that share the same intention. Our vision is to be there for anyone who wishes to take the startup path, be the best place to start, & forever partner in success & failure. We offer a global platform that helps startups grow & succeed through community, education, mentorship, investments, press & more, & deliver directly under the WeWork Labs brand & indirectly by powering incubators & accelerators.
