WeWork has raised $4.4 billion in funding from SoftBank Group and SoftBank Vision Fund, the office-sharing startup announced Thursday.
As part of the investments, SoftBank is naming two directors to WeWork's board: Ronald D. Fisher, a director of SoftBank Group; and Mark Schwartz, an external director of SoftBank Group.
Earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal reported that WeWork raised $300 million from SoftBank with plans to raise a total of $3 billion. Then, in early July, Bloomberg reported that WeWork had gotten another $760 million. At the end of July, WeWork secured an extra $500 million from SoftBank. Thursday's announcement includes the previous investments.
WeWork leases out large blocks of space in commercial buildings and then subleases them to smaller companies, frequently tech startups. The real estate firm was valued at $21 billion in July, making it the fifth highest-valued startup in the world.
SoftBank's investment represents one of the first made by its new $100 billion tech-focused Vision Fund, which was announced last October and is being described as the largest fund of its kind in the world.
