Labs has extended its footprint to 32 cities in 15 countries since 2011.
Building on WeWork’s global resources, the platform offers community education, connections and mentorship to help entrepreneurs.
“We have seen many incubators, but do not see ourselves as one o
f them,” says Roee Adler, senior vice-president and global head of WeWork Labs.
Roee says WeWork seeks no equity and sets no time limits for startups’ growth, aiming to buil
d an innovation platform that creates an enabling ecosystem with tailor-made programs and services for its members.
As entrepreneurs, it is important to stay curious and learn to understand the nuances of different cultures, Roee says.
“So, the more you understand people, the more you can empathize and the more you might end up with meaningful relationships.”
