WeWork Entrepreneurs in Residence (WEIR)
A WEIR is a seasoned professional in the start-up ecosystem who brings deep entrepreneurial knowledge, first-hand experience and a unique skillset to their Labs location of choice. We ask WEIRs to commit 6 hours per week to building one-to-one relationships with our members, and typically enjoy a 3-month residency within our community.
The majority of our members are bootstrapped or have a small amount of initial capital. They are looking for their first, early, and strategic investor(s) to provide financial support, connections, and direction. Our investors are focused on supporting our founders in the nascent stages of development and growth.
Service and perk providers
Our service providers offer exclusive discounts available only for WeWork Labs members to help launch and grow their businesses. Services can include access to cloud platforms, human resources support, sales tools and more. By gaining access to our global cohort, service providers can align with our members at the very early stages of inception and growth.
Content Contributor Network
To provide direct guidance and education for our members, we have an internal editorial blog called WeWork Labs Insider. Becoming part of the Contributor Network gives you the opportunity to share your experience, insights and advice by posting original content related to your own professional experience. Your insight will help members around the world succeed with their entrepreneurial journeys.
Buyers & Distributors
Our member companies have a diverse set of products and services ranging from consumer products to software to medical devices. Buyers from all over the world are interested in showcasing, selling and distributing Lab member products through their storefronts or other distribution chains. These partnerships help align buyers with innovation as well as help our companies grow.
