WeWork, the unicorn-status start-up that helped launch the current co-working movement, has been growing exponentially. In June, co-founder and CEO Adam Neumann said the company has $1 billion in annual revenue and has plans for an IPO, according to the Commercial Observer. It is now valued at a reported $17 billion, with its most recent $4.4 billion investment from Japanese conglomerate SoftBank and its Softbank Vision Fund.
But this kind of explosive expansion has posed a unique challenge for Miguel McKelvey, who co-founded the business with Neumann in 2010. As the corporation scales, he needs to make sure the company's culture does too.
