WeWork Labs

WeWork Labs gathers early-stage startups and provides them with the space, community, and programming to help them fulfill their destiny.


Our global mentor network comprises more than 1,300 professionals. Mentors engage with members one-on-one, in roundtable settings and virtually. Each WeWork Lab also hosts an Entrepreneur in Residence. We create customized educational programming to meet our members’ personal and professional development needs. Curriculums are developed and facilitated in partnership with our network of mentors and experts. Each WeWork lab is operated by a dedicated Labs Manager. Pulling from their own entrepreneurial experiences and networks, Labs Managers serve as coaches and super-connectors for our members.

Our Dallas WeWork Labs location is open at the WeWork Thanksgiving Tower location. Please visit our website for membership and pricing information. By the end of 2019 we will operate more than 100 WeWork Labs on five continents. Our WeWork Labs Satellite Program provides members with opportunities to access programming in any of our global locations. It is no secret that The We Company harnessed the power of community unlike any business before it. We know that entrepreneurs working alongside one another creates the ideal environment for learning and development. More than 50 international service providers have partnered with WeWork Labs to offer exclusive member benefits and discounts.
