Per an Economic Impact Report out from WeWork last week, small businesses are thriving as a result of locating in WeWork, not just because of the concept of “offices as service,” but because of the networking being done by their employees.

And small businesses are not alone. Twenty-two percent of the Fortune 500 are WeWork members because of the opportunity to secure top talent combined with the entrepreneurial environment and culture.

This Thursday WeWork is having a networking happy hour here at Holyhoke.

LexBlog team members should give some thought to taking part. Personal networking can be tougher than online when you’ve already met folks via WeWork’s chat, blogging, Twitter, Facebook and the like, but obviously it can be done – especially here, where people in entrepreneurial companies are wired to network.

  • Who do you work with here?
  • What does the company do?
  • What do you do?
  • How long have you been there?
  • What do you like most about it.”

LexBlog is here at WeWork, in part because of the networking opportunities that serve you, personally, and our company. As a company founder and CEO, it is my responsibility to help you grow as people, and professionally. And the way you grow is in large part based on who you meet, know and perhaps mentor with.
