鈫╋笍 How one CEO was ‘converted’ regarding coworking
Sean Johnson shares 10 ways Industrious converted them from thinking "no way" about using Expand 馃憞 coworking for their office location, into admitting that coworking actually "makes a ton of sense".
Reasons shared include that only 20% of the team are in the office on any day; coffee, snacks and vendors are handled; beautiful spaces on flex terms; can flex up/down as needed; no IT stress; multiple locations; and overflow capacity when needed. Could any coworking space have written better copy? I think not!

馃く Mega-platform-operator-stakeholder deal finally public
Sam Rosen shares that the news is finally public about the Deskpass, Breather, Industrious (and Expand 馃憞 CRBE-kinda) deal.
In short here’s what’s happening. Deskpass and Breather will merge, but both platforms will continue to be operated by Deskpass as separate brands (for now). What about Industrious? If you remember back to Week 22 of 2021, Industrious acquired Breather for $3M. Well what this post doesn’t share, but other press releases did is that "a spokesperson for Industrious said it would own a 40% stake in the merged subsidiary". How about CBRE? Well… remembering even further back, to Week 8 of 2021, CBRE invested $200M into the firm, and obtained 35% ownership, when they merged their Hana brand into Industrious.
So what does this mean? For operators – technically more bookings through two platforms managed by Deskpass. For Deskpass – two markets of customers to service and connect to spaces. For Industrious – offloading tech which may have been eating into margins. For CBRE – a more valuable/profitable Industrious? Let’s see.

馃挵 An Agency filled over 73k sqft of flex office space in 2023
Isaac Tonkin shares that their commercial real estate agency secured 101,759sqft of office space for Expand 馃憞 their customers. Interestingly, they share that a lot of that (except 28,484 in traditional leases) was with flex space brands like Industrious, Fora, Us&Co and flex-leaning landlords like Landmark and Bruntwood.
I’d love to see if there was any sqft-age filled at indie or independent brand, and how that compares to the figures shared.

馃 Industrious front-row seat to the WeWork show
Anna Squires Levine shares how they’d answer all those "sooo WeWork?" questions from their Expand 馃憞 extended family.
The summary? This has been coming for a long time, and no, we weren鈥檛 surprised. No, this doesn鈥檛 mean coworking is a goner. The sector is having a banner year. The Industrious business model is based almost entirely on landlord partnerships, which is totally different from WeWork鈥檚 model and is designed to de-risk our business for the long haul. To put it into perspective, WeWork鈥檚 fixed expenses as a percent of revenue are still about 75% even after reducing their debt. Ours are about 35%.
