WeWork, the world\u2019s leading coworking and space-as-a-service platform, today announced the opening of its first Taiwan location. The new building, WeWork 97 Songren Lu, occupies eight floors of Exchange Square 2 in the heart of Taipei\u2019s financial and business community. WeWork 97 Songren Lu is part of WeWork\u2019s record number of new buildings in December, with 52 buildings opened in cities across the world and plans to open more before year-end. \u201cAs we continue to grow geographically in a smart and innovative way, we are pleased to open our first-ever WeWork in Taiwan, bringing beautiful, intelligently designed workspace to member companies of all sizes seeking a flexible real estate solution,\u201d said Sebastian Gunningham, Co-Chief Executive Officer. \u201cThis new location in the city of Taipei provides a home to a strong community of entrepreneurs and businesses and expands our worldwide platform to better serve our members\u2019 evolving, global workspace needs.\u201d WeWork\u2019s expansion into Taiwan, an innovation hub and home to local and foreign businesses alike, was driven by strong market demand for space that supports productivity, community and growth of companies of all sizes. CloudMinds, a builder and operator of an open end-to-end cloud robot system, and Medical Augmented Intelligence, a software startup dedicated to creating VR-based solutions for health practitioners, are just two of the innovative member companies in the new location. The Company plans to continue expanding its core WeWork platform globally, pursuing profitable, disciplined growth through market-driven models, including end-to-end solutions with long-term lease arrangements as well as revenue-sharing joint ventures and management and franchising agreements. A future shift to more asset-light models for growth is expected to improve WeWork\u2019s long-term financial position while maintaining a consistent and exceptional member experience.
