Go inside the thinking behind a $16B startup -- worth more than
Twitter, Pinterest or Dropbox as of this recording. Today's guest,
Jesse Middleton, is a co-founder of WeWork Labs, the company's
global startup incubator, and currently the head of WeWork X, which
includes Labs and also the new WeWork investing and M&A;
activities. Jesse was also among the first to join the co-founders
of WeWork when it started. 
Jesse shares insights on everything from mission and hiring to
community development to the scrappy and clever tactics they used
early on at WeWork. We also peer ahead to the future of what WeWork
could be doing globally.
