About WeWork Stock
Our WeWork IPO Center has arrived!
WeWork is the community for creators. They transform buildings into beautiful, collaborative workspaces and provide infrastructure, services, events and technology so their members can focus on doing what they love. They currently have nineteen locations in six cities with over 10,000 members. Their members run the gamut – startups, small businesses, freelancers, writers, independent film makers, you name it. One thing they all share is an entrepreneurial spirit. Being a part of this powerful community helps them achieve much more together than they could individually.
