WeWork Labs is The We Company's global platform for early-stage start-ups and forward-thinking enterprise companies. We empower inventive humans and organisations to shape the present and influence the future.
Our start-up labs
We start with thoughtfully designed spaces that inspire our global community of entrepreneurs to experiment, collaborate and grow. Within these spaces, we foster meaningful connections between start-ups and the educational, mentorship and financial resources needed to drive their businesses forward.
Our global mentor network comprises more than 1,300 professionals. Mentors engage with members one on one, in roundtable settings and virtually. Each WeWork Lab also hosts an entrepreneur in residence.
We create customised educational programming to meet our members’ personal and professional development needs. Curriculums are developed and facilitated in partnership with our network of mentors and experts.
Each WeWork lab is operated by a dedicated Labs Manager. Pulling from their own entrepreneurial experiences and networks, Labs Managers serve as coaches and super-connectors for our members.
By the end of 2019, we will operate more than 100 WeWork Labs on five continents. Our WeWork Labs satellite programme provides members with opportunities to access programming in any of our global locations.
It is no secret that The We Company has harnessed the power of community unlike any business before it. We know that entrepreneurs working alongside one another creates the ideal environment for learning and development.
More than 50 international service providers have partnered with WeWork Labs to offer exclusive member benefits and discounts.
