WeWork is more than just trendy office spaces around the globe. This co-working company is valued at $20 billion and not only provides space for blooming companies but also helps them to form a network to support each other as they grow their businesses and their individual careers. Today, WeWork has announced a new acquisition.
WeWork will be acquiring Flatiron School. For those who haven’t heard of Flatiron School, it is a coding education platform that offers both online and offline classes to those who want a career in the tech world. Since its inception in 2012, it has raised more than $14 million.
However, the terms of the deal has not been disclosed yet. The acquisition of Flatiron School will provide those WeWork members an opportunity to expand their knowledge base and skill set as well as add to their resumes for future opportunities.
WeWork CEO and founder Adam Neumann announced in a blog post, “Our culture is one in which we are always ready to do more, to learn more, and we are proud to expand our offering with this new platform for learning. In Flatiron, we have found a partner who shares our vision of connecting people — through space, design, technology, and community — and understands that those connections are what humanizes the way we work and live. We are all students for life. I am excited to welcome the entire Flatiron School team of educators, engineers and innovators to WeWork to continue to learn, together.”
