NYC is home to many coworking spaces. But WeWork is not your everyday ‘desk and a stool’ for rent. WeWork was already the fastest-growing lessee of new office space in New York and will become the fastest-growing lessee of new space in America in 2015. WeWork is the leader, by far, in a surging co-working space movement – worldwide.
Why? One of the members, Erik Martin – General Manager of Reddit explains it as follows: “You know how in movies and comics super villains always had these really cool secret bases, and inside they were always swarms of activity and specialists and grand plans? WeWork is just like that.”
The real perk is the community: WeWorkers network at weekly parties, members pitch their ideas at informal demo days and get free advice during office hours from willing outside partners. Handshake agreements and job referrals are made over the wagging tails of members’ dogs.
