WeWork, Mastercard explore the future of commerce

Mastercard is partnering with WeWork as they launch their Enterprise Innovation Lab in San Francisco.

The Enterprise Innovation Lab demonstrates Mastercard’s continued commitment to partner and collaborate with established companies, digital players and startups to create the future technologies we will rely on in the connected world.

At the Enterprise Innovation Lab based in WeWork 600 California Street in San Francisco, WeWork and Mastercard will engage with the greater tech community to share ideas and collaborate across diverse sets of emerging technology areas, like the Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, artificial intelligence and related technologies. That means we’re inviting creators from all over to join in our innovation efforts at WeWork Labs and work with Mastercard to redesign how we live, work and play.

Mastercard and WeWork are focused on creating a connected global community. It’s no secret that the nature of the way we live, work and interact with each other is changing. Nearly all aspects of life are made easier through smart devices, enabling flexible lifestyle all around. WeWork’s mission is to help create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living, which means we promote flexibility and technologies that can help us achieve our goals. We are constantly striving to support our members with the tools and resources they need to create their life’s work. The Enterprise Innovation Lab is yet another example of our commitment.

To participate, innovators and companies must complete an application form. WeWork, with Mastercard support, will host selected applicants at the Enterprise Innovation Lab free of charge for five months. Companies that are selected will also get access to mentorship opportunities and numerous benefits from the WeWork network to develop their own projects. They’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with Mastercard in the digital space. And those in the space will also have the opportunity to directly use innovative IoT technologies that Mastercard and WeWork will be jointly testing at the Innovation Lab with other leading tech players.

WeWork and Mastercard believe that the future of business and technology is one where many come together to collaborate. By having diverse perspectives and different strengths, we can create an ecosystem of open innovation that meaningfully impacts the future. We want to connect our communities with meaningful opportunities so that we can be better together and create the future together. And we want you to join us.
