Considering how many entrepreneurs-to-be and assorted tech people will be enrolled in summer programs come June, opening a new coworking space in SoHo is a sensible move to anticipate the enlargement of the labor force. So far, Consmr, StoryStack, Citypockets, and “many more” are already occupying some of the desks.The space, which includes a fully stocked kitchen, is being coordinated by Jesse Middleton and Matt Shampine.
WeWorkLabs’ avowed goal, as stated in its homepage, is:
“In addition to offering entrepreneurs great space to build their own products, our overarching goal is to foster collaboration among intelligent, creative and driven individuals who may not have otherwise had the opportunity to connect. We believe that by creating an environment like this, innovative new technologies, products and services will be born.
The idea is to provide 50 of New York’s most talented community members with the essentials, and then leave the rest up to them. We will also provide the members a network of mentors to help people take their projects/products to the next level.”
