Two of the most hyped buzzwords in business over the past couple of years have been unicorn and disruptor. While they not be quite as well-known as their startup counterparts that these buzzwords describe, co-working landlord WeWork certainly fits both of these buzz-worthy descriptions.

With a $40 billion+ valuation and a gigantic membership consisting of companies of all sizes, it is tough to overlook WeWork. I recently sat down to scrape together a few stats and facts about WeWork that help us understand just how big and widespread WeWork has become in just a few years.

WeWork Facts

  • Website: wework.com
  • Launch Year: 2010
  • Headquarters: New York, NY
  • Founders: Adam Neumann, Miguel McKelvey
  • What is WeWork:

WeWork is a global network of workspaces where companies and people grow together. We transform buildings into dynamic environments for creativity, focus, and connection. More than just the best place to work, though, this is a movement toward humanizing work. We believe that CEOs can help each other, offices can use the comforts of home, and we can all look forward to Monday if we find real meaning in what we do. (source)
