WeWork WeGrow is in charge of running elementary-level “Micro-schools” that have a focus on entrepreneurship, and operate out of WeWork spaces.
Since announcing its plans for WeGrow schools in 2017, only one school is in operation, located in WeWork’s Chelsea neighborhood.
At the time of the school’s launch, a We Company representative told Fast Company that WeGrow could transition to become a non-profit “At some point in the future.”
Getty When the We Company announced its rebranding in January, the idea behind the new name was to allow the company “To encompass all aspects of people’s lives, in both physical and digital worlds,” Fast Company reported.
The company revealed that a business plan back from 2009 teased expansions into brands like WeBank, which would provide financial and lending services, and WeSail, which would offer yachts for charter in the Caribbean.
It’s unclear which of these ideas the We Company is still pursuing, but the upcoming S-1 filing expected this week should give a pretty good idea about how the company plans to expand after going public.
A spokesperson for The We Company declined to comment about the expansions reportedly mentioned in its 2009 business plan.
