Very surprising WeWork didn’t conceive of this
The Wing announced plans to expand to six new locations, including Williamsburg. The social club offers co-working space and amenities designed with women’s needs in mind. No men are allowed.
Revenue Model: Membership at the Wing costs between $215 and $250 a month, according to the NYPost.
Potential Hurdle: Although the New York Human Rights Commission is looking into whether the exclusion of men violates anti-discrimination laws, this is not a major concern. We would be shocked if laws that were passed to empower women were used to do the opposite, particularly in our zeitgeist.
Worth Noting: The Wing raised $32 million in a Series B round four months ago. The lead investor was WeWork.
