WeWork and 2U have partnered with a new initiative that's connecting its existing members with global education opportunities.
2U is an educational technology company that intends to create a connected global campus of professionals looking to enhance their skills. The company offers courses at participating universities, including Yale, Berkeley and Georgetown. Adam Neumann, WeWork's co-founder and CEO believes "we are all students for life," and with this new partnership, this statement can become a more accessible reality for most.
WeWork is offering places for 2U's students to meet and study, and in return, 2U is offering WeWork members educational opportunities and scholarships worth a total of $5 million. Through the partnership, 2U will be offering WeWork members exclusive certificate courses.
