Throw in a good shuffleboard table, and you’ve apparently got a $20 billion start-up combination. But is WeWork really worth that $20 billion? Laura Bliss, who works at a WeWork co-working location for The Atlantic, explores the ins and outs of the world’s sixth-most valuable start-up. getAbstract recommends her analysis to investors, start-up founders and freelancers.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why independent workers and employees of large corporations are spending time in WeWork spaces,
- Why an economic downturn might pummel WeWork’s strategy,
- How WeWork intends to succeed into the future.
