WeWork will be opening its first location, 50 Krucza, in Warsaw later this year
WeWork expands to bring new Polish members the beautiful, functional spaces designed to foster collaboration in 2018
WeWork - the space, community and services provider focused on helping people create their life’s work - is announcing its arrival in Poland. WeWork will be opening its first location in Warsaw, on 50 Krucza, which will open late 2018.
WeWork was founded in 2010 to help create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living. There has been a macro shift toward a new way of work—one focused on a movement towards meaning—and WeWork is accelerating this movement. We have seen that more than 70% of WeWork’s members collaborate with each other, and that collaboration leads to shared business services and new ideas that help businesses thrive.
Mikhail Konoplev, General Manager, WeWork Central & Eastern Europe, said: “Poland has always had a creative workforce and successful businesses. Today, Poland is a rapidly developing economy home to big businesses, an active market for small-to-medium-sized enterprises, and millions of entrepreneurs. Our mission is to give our members the space, community, services, and flexibility they need to bring energy and inspiration to their work, while fostering collaborations with like-minded people who can help their businesses grow and succeed.
WeWork is a global company with a local playbook. In Poland, we aim to provide our members with the best in local programming and services, designed by a local team, while leveraging what we’ve learned in our 250+ locations around the world to provide high-amenity, best-in-class spaces. By expanding WeWork in Central Europe, WeWork members will benefit from more location options and a wider group of members from various industries, who can share advice and business ideas, and utilize each other’s skill sets.”
Over 240,000 members are now based at WeWork locations around the world, and member businesses range from start-ups to mid- and large-sized companies. International locations serve as a base for business travel, as well as offer opportunities for companies to easily expand abroad.
WeWork membership comes with internet access, cleaning, and furniture. Members can choose from a variety of membership plans, which include “hot-desking,” or using available desks, or a private, noise-controlled office.
Our first location to open, 50 Krucza, will be in the heart of the city centre. This convenient location is also located right next to Centrum underground station, so our members can travel easily throughout the city.
We are excited about the landlord’s building and worked closely with Cushman & Wakefield on this deal.
WeWork’s mission is to give members the space, connections and services they need to create their life’s work, while helping them collaborate with like-minded people who can help their businesses grow and succeed.
Founded in 2010 by Adam Neumann and Miguel McKelvey in New York, the company now employs more than 5,000 staff globally. WeWork currently has more than 250 physical locations in 74 cities around the world. WeWork seeks ‘creators’ from all industries and companies big and small to become members, with a suite of WeWork-specific membership benefits in each country and a local staff in each city.
Over 240,000 members are now based at a WeWork, with member companies ranging from start-ups to household names including Delta, IBM, KMPG, GE, Dropbox, and Samsung. More than 70% of WeWork’s members collaborate with each other and its international locations serve as convenient bases for business travel, enabling a great degree of work flexibility for both multinationals and small-to-medium-sized businesses alike, as well as options for easy expansion into new markets.
