WeWork’s Veterans in Residence program is a national effort in partnership with Bunker Labs aimed at assisting US military veterans and their family members to pursue their life’s work. If you have started and are building a business it offers the community and services you need to create your life’s work.

Hear how WeWork’s Veterans in Residence program empowers you to find your tribe and create your life’s work.
After incubating the program in Denver, WeWork is expanding the Veterans in Residence program nationally to provide fully sponsored workspace to Veterans in Residence tribes of 10 veterans across 14 cities every six months. Veterans and military family members should apply to their nearest city (see map below). WeWork is also proud to announce our commitment to hiring 1500 veterans over the next five years, and will support member companies in hiring veterans and military family members as well. Additionally, any US military veteran or US military veteran-owned company with fewer than 10 employees will be eligible for partially sponsored space or a private office (up to 25% off) for their first 12 months as a WeWork member (offer available for new members only, some restrictions apply). Note: We are currently NOT accepting applications for the Veterans in Residence program until our application process reopens in January, 2019.
Veterans and military family members enjoy access to complimentary workspace for six months and the full WeWork member experience, from front-desk support to discounts on operational software in our Services Store.
Veterans and military family members are granted access to uniquely designed lounge and meeting spaces for mentorship, networking, and special events.
Local & Global Community
Veterans and military family members also gain access to our digital Member Network, a global community of 210,000+ professionals in 70+ cities, plus access to thousands of veteran entrepreneurs via our veteran partner communities.
Citywide Community Events
Veterans and military family members collaborate with local leaders to organize monthly professional and social events at WeWork, bringing together members of local veteran and business communities.
