WeWork signs deal to open office in Busan next year

WeWork, a global shared work space provider, said Tuesday it has signed an agreement with Busan to make inroads into the country’s second-largest city next year.

The company signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the southeastern port city on Monday with a plan to open its first Busan branch in the Seomyeon area by the first half of next year, it said.

WeWork said more locations, including in Centum City and Busan Station, will be launched down the road.

“WeWork will contribute to creating jobs and global business opportunities as well as revitalizing the startup ecosystem in Busan,” Matthew Shampine, General Manager of WeWork Korea, said.

Established in New York City in 2010, WeWork currently has over 300 offices in 23 countries, including 10 in Seoul. The first Korean WeWork office opened in 2016.
