DURBAN – WeWork is announcing its arrival in South Africa and the company will open its first location in Johannesburg in 2019.
WeWork is the space, community and services provider that is focused on helping people create their life’s work.
WeWork was founded in 2010 to help create a world where people work to make a living, 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.
Eugen Miropolski, Managing Director, WeWork International, said, "We’re so proud to announce our expansion to South Africa. This is our first location in Africa and we’re excited to welcome new members and grow our community here".
He added that Johannesburg is home to a huge number of innovative and established businesses as well as entrepreneurs and startups, and they are looking forward to learning from those who join our community of 400,000 members across 400 locations around the world.
