WeWork has fast become one of the largest coworking platforms in the world. Known for their inspiring and innovative architectual designs, premium office space and global services, WeWork has effectively created a community that reaches a worldwide audience.
Launched in 2010, they opened their first shared workspace in New York. Since then, the company has experienced rapid growth, now reaching 400 locations across 26 countries.
In 2018 alone, WeWork expanded to 34 new cities, 8 new countries, reached 400,000 global members and effectively transformed the nature of the flexible workspace industry.
Deskmag's annual report predicts that by the end of 2019, there will be an estimated 2.2 million coworking members around the world. This astounding figure makes sense following the entrance of the likes of WeWork and the hundreds of other coworking operators both within Australia and across the globe. By getting a multi-billion dollar valuation, WeWork not only contributed to the disruption of the coworking industry, but raised a lot of awareness of this mode of renting and working.
