WeWork Labs opened its doors to New York City entrepreneurs in April 2011. For $250 per month, they could raid WeWork’s fridges, drink its kegs, and build companies.The co-working space was an instant hit. It now houses more than 200 entrepreneurs who are working on more than 100 companies.
The New York space is expanding too. As of July, WeWork Labs NY will increase to 34,000 square feet on 175 Varick Street, taking over two floors.
Before, WeWork Labs just offered cheap office space for entrepreneurs. But it now offers health insurance to members for $360 per month.
WeWork is the home to up-and-coming startups like Turf and Fitocracy. Its companies have gone off to accelerators like 500 Startups, TechStars, DreamIt Ventures and ERA. It was founded by Jesse Middleton, Adam Neumann, and Matthew Shampine.
