WeWork’s Cofounder Miguel McKelvey to Speak at SXSW 2018

WeWork Cofounder and Chief Culture Officer Miguel McKelvey will be a speaker at South by Southwest Interactive 2018.

McKelvey cofounded WeWork in 2010 with Adam Neumann in New York City. WeWork is a privately held company with more than 3,000 employees. It has more than 160,000 members worldwide and it currently has 170 locations in 58 cities and 19 countries. McKelvey oversees the company’s culture and operations.

In Austin, WeWork has three offices and recently announced plans to open a fourth location downtown: WeWork West 6th. Opening in 2018, West 6th will accommodate a community of 1050 members. The space at 221 West 6th includes hot desks and private offices, conference room and phone booths, community bars, comfortable nooks, pantries, and complimentary fruit water and coffee.

WeWork also recently announced that it has a partnership with MassChallenge Texas to be located in WeWork’s new location.

“Over the past several years, we’ve had the privilege of building a strong and inspiring community of creators across Austin,” Nathan Lenahan, head of Operations for WeWork’s southern region, said in a news release. “With demand continuing to grow, we are opening our fourth Austin location in 2018. In addition to growing our physical footprint, we’re excited to announce a partnership with MassChallenge. MassChallenge’s work aligns with our mission to help people do what they love by providing the tools and resources they need, and we’re excited to work together to support and empower companies making a difference right here in Texas.”

“WeWork is quickly becoming a cornerstone of the Texas innovation community,” Mike Millard, managing director of MassChallenge Texas, said in a news release. “We are excited for our inaugural cohort to work out of WeWork’s newest location, and look forward to strengthening the local ecosystem of creators together.”
