WeWork's Overnight Model

WeWork's Overnight Model

Wework’s concept and business model was created in one night.

Thats how fast Co-Founder, Miguel Mckelvey acted to turn and idea into reality. He stayed up all night and created “Green Desk”, the first iteration of what is now WeWork. He built the website, designed the floor plans, and put together the business plan.

Miguel and his Co-Founder, Adam, noticed the building they were working in was partially vacant, that was inefficient. They noticed a problem and started to solve it right away. Immediately they convinced their landlord to lease them just one floor, getting started on their idea, to create beautiful co-working spaces, right away.

Speed and resourcefulness are key reasons why WeWork, is now valued at more than $20 billion. They had an idea and wasted no time trying to make it perfect before starting.

Has the idea of perfection ever held you back from executing an idea?
