WeCrashed (2022), is a recently launched AppleTV+ docuseries that relates the story of WeWork, a coworking space start-up co-founded by an eccentric couple – Adam and Rebekah Neumann.
In less than a decade, with his wife’s help, Adam expands WeWork from a single location to a worldwide brand with coworking spaces in 111 cities and 29 countries. However, Adam’s reckless spending, hard-partying lifestyle and questionable business decisions lead to his board of directors urging him to resign as WeWork’s CEO.
This series brought about some reflection, and reminded me of certain important elements that can be catalysts to success. Here are a few key learning points I have come up with after binge-watching this series.
WeCrashed is an entertaining series inspired by actual events and how ‘success’ can come crashing down. I would certainly recommend this series to CEOs in the start-up world, or anyone looking at coming up with a disruptive idea or concept.
