Season 1, Episode 6, IPO -- Just Kidding

Description

The WeWork Story, Part 6:WeWork had spent nine years chasing lightning-fast growth, burning billions of dollars, and expanding around the world. In 2019, the company reached a turning point: WeWork needed even more cash, and Adam Neumann decided to take his company public with a massive IPO.

In this episode, reporter Ellen Huet asks: How did the company's fortune flip so fast, and why didn't they see it coming?
