WeWork co-founder and CEO Adam Neumann today (19 Sep) revealed plans to open two new offices in London as the company looks to increase its presence in the capital.
WeWork announced it will be opening two additional spaces at London Fields in Hackney and a new flagship location, Aldwych House, near Covent Garden.
The company is already one of the largest New York-based companies to invest in London with 10 locations across London and over 10,000 members.
Neumann said: "We are delighted to be hosting the mayor, the deputy mayor and their #LondonIsOpen delegation at WeWork headquarters today.
"London is WeWork’s second largest market after New York with 10,000 members, this underlines WeWork’s commitment to London’s entrepreneurial community and our integral role in London’s future as a center for companies both large and small."
The event saw Khan address leading figures from New York and London’s tech and business communities at an event hosted at WeWork’s HQ in New York where he rallied for greater collaboration between London and US tech hubs such as New York, and declare that London remains open for US businesses.
Khan added: "Our great city has long been at the very forefront of financial services. When you combine that with our new-found technological expertise, it creates an unrivalled opportunity for companies looking to break into the European market.
"Despite the country’s decision to leave the European Union, there is no doubt that London will continue to be the booming and successful city it is today, open to talent and creativity from across the world and a leading destination for American business."
