About WeWork

WeWork is the community of creators. We provide the space, community and services our members need to create their life's work. WeWork’s mission is to create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living.  

We’re a group of entrepreneurial, grateful individuals who instill the idea of working better together in everything that we do. Our success is the result of our collaboration: talented and outstanding team members who always challenge convention. We have over 50,000 members in our community that spans cities around the world.

We transform buildings into beautiful, collaborative work spaces and provide infrastructure, services, events and technology so our members can focus on doing what they love.  Our members thrive in communities online. Our ability to aggregate their needs enables us to offer them a variety of support services at a value that would otherwise be unavailable to them. We always go the extra mile to help them in their effort to build sustainable businesses and successful lives.

Our hunger for building great spaces, empowering small businesses and connecting interesting people hasn't yet begun to be satisfied. We are just getting started.

Our values guide who we are and everything that we do. 

Inspired

We do what we love and are connected to something greater than ourselves.


Entrepreneurial

We are creators, leaders and self-starters.  We try new things; we challenge convention; and we’re not afraid to fail.


Authentic

We are genuine to our brand, mission and values.  We’re not perfect and we don’t pretend to be.  We are, though, always honest and as transparent as we can be.

Tenacious

We never settle.  We get sh*t done and we get it done well.  Be persistent and knock down walls – literally if you have to.  You have our permission.


Grateful

We are grateful for each other, our members, and to be part of this movement.  We don’t take success for granted.  We’re happy to be alive.

Together

We are in this together.  This is a team effort.  We always look out for one another.  We have empathy; we know we’re all human, and know we can’t do any of this alone.
