Creating a better
workday for all

Our journey

What started as an idea became a global community

WeWork was founded in 2010, with the vision to build inspiring spaces where people and companies come together, get inspired, and do their best work. Since opening our first location in New York City, we’ve grown into a global network of workspaces grounded in flexibility and community. Today, we’re constantly reimagining how space, technology, and community can help everyone—from freelancers to Fortune 500s—get more out of their workday.

From a single location in 2010, we’ve grown to hundreds of locations worldwide. As the world reimagines how we use the office, WeWork remains at the forefront of how tomorrow works.
