The Bar Is Now At Your Desk | The WeWork Story: Part 2

Listen to Episode One:

From the beginning, WeWork sold office space, but it sold something else, too: fun. Beer flowed freely, members partied at the office, and your work was your life. But getting these offices open on the aggressive timeline set by the co-founder, Adam Neumann, was utter chaos, especially for the burgeoning company’s young, inexperienced workers. In this episode of Foundering, we take a look at WeWork’s early days, when the startup was growing so fast that some buildings opened without doors or functioning bathrooms.

Foundering is a serialized podcast from the journalists at Bloomberg Technology. Each season, Foundering brings you inside a different high-stakes drama from Silicon Valley, where its companies are wielding unprecedented capital and power.
