Jesse Middleton is a startup founder and one of the early executives at WeWork. He tackled a bunch of growth and operations challenges before launching WeWork Labs, their own global startup incubator, investment fund, business, and digital product development lab.
But before jumping into the world of venture capital, Middleton launched and sold a few companies of his own, and then spent five years as part of the early team at WeWork, growing the company from a few buildings to a worldwide network and pioneer of the coworking and remote work industries.
Middleton joins us to share his story, what it was like building WeWork and WeWork Labs, what it was like transitioning into venture capital, his two investment rules at Flybridge, and much more.
