The economic ripple effect

WeWork began in 2010 with a vision to build more than just beautiful, shared office spaces. We wanted to empower people and companies to pursue their purpose.

Today WeWork can provide access to a desk, a private office, and even custom-designed headquarters in 100 cities around the world.

This year, we partnered with HR&A; Advisors, an industry-leading economic development and policy-research firm, to track our community’s impact on people and businesses, neighborhoods, and cities across the world.
