WeWork is bringing a new concept to Big D! WeWork Labs, the program designed for early-stage startups will open its first location in Dallas this fall. Based in WeWork’s downtown Thanksgiving Tower location, WeWork Labs offers education and mentorship, talent development, growth tools, and community support.
Leading the charge as Head of WeWork labs is Will Akins — bringing his previous experience as director of both the Dallas Entrepreneur Center (DEC) and Addison Treehouse.
“Our main priority is our members and the community we provide them. We are very excited for Dallas to be the home of Labs here in Texas and to continue supporting entrepreneurs and early-stage startups get off the ground in a more significant way,” said Nathan Lenahan, WeWork’s general manager overseeing the Texas market. “Dallas is an incredibly vibrant city buzzing with startups and having WeWork Labs here as a resource is an incredible opportunity.”
