CELEBRATING NEW IDEAS
AND REAL CHANGE

“Create Your Life’s Work” is more than a mantra to us, it’s a way of life. Through 2017 and beyond, we’ll be hosting events around the world to recognize and reward those who are thinking in new ways, building fresh projects, and achieving real change. Whether you’re an entrepreneur or artist, startup or nonprofit, you’re a creator, and
we want to support you.

WHAT'S HAPPENING?

WeWork is committing over $20 million to empower creators around the world. From Washington, DC to Tel Aviv, Berlin to New York City, applicants will pitch their projects and businesses at Regional Finals for the chance to win meaningful grants. Throughout the events, guests will also enjoy the full WeWork experience in one place—educational workshops, job fairs, pop-up markets, live entertainment, and plenty of inspiration.

WHY NOW?

WeWork has always called itself the platform for creators. A platform can provide support, it can provide a forum for discussion, action, or creation, and a platform can be foundation for a certain set of beliefs or principles. We believe as the nature of work changes, more and more people are pursuing careers with intention. The Creator Awards is a way for us to celebrate those leading the way.
