I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since we opened WeWork Labs. What started as a small group of 47 people in a building in SoHo has grown into a community of over 400 amazing individuals across three cities including New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles with a second NY location opening up just around the corner!
In 24 months our members have accomplished so much including raising over $50 million in funding, getting into almost every accelerator on the planet, multiple acquisitions and, of course, our Harlem Shake video (included at the bottom for your viewing enjoyment). But more important than all of these things are the bonds that have been built inside our walls. New companies have been born between neighbors, support has been provided across the room and across the country and we’ve even worked with our members to make awesome products that will benefit the community as we continue to grow.
We couldn’t have done any of this without the support of our awesome team (thanks Trista, Ted, Merewyn and Ross) and our sustaining partners (thanks WilmerHale, Microsoft, PepsiCo, TriNet and Digital Ocean) and of course, our members. Thank you.
Finally, I know that I couldn’t have done any of this without my partners in crime, Adam, Matt and Magda. I feel very lucky to have all three of you in my life. You’ve supported me through many an adventure and it’s only going to get even more amazing from here. Thank you.
Here’s to another successful year of growth, success and, if we’re lucky, awesome videos!
