Nearly eight months after first entering Asia with a co-working space in Shanghai, US-based WeWork has brought its hustle to the bustle of Hong Kong.
WeWork has just officially opened two Hong Kong facilities, bringing co-working spaces and services to entrepreneurs for prices that start at US$590 per month.
