From the beginning of this year onwards, Digital Havas Inc. resides in WeWork Japan, an innovative co-working office located in Arkhills South, Roppongi.
WeWork is an American company that provides shared workspaces, technology start-up subculture communities, and services for entrepreneurs, freelancers, start-ups, small businesses, and large enterprises. Founded in 2010, it is headquartered in New York City. WeWork is currently valued at around US$20 billion and manages 10 million square feet of office space.
WeWork Japan is an equal joint venture between the New York-based shared-office provider and SoftBank. The Japanese conglomerate’s founder, Masayoshi Son, and his Vision Fund invested $4.4 billion in WeWork to finance an aggressive global expansion plan that includes a $500 million project in China. WeWork plans to open 10 to 20 locations in central Tokyo in the near future.
Since Digital Havas works with global enterprises, we chose Roppongi, an area of Tokyo that is a hub of activity for international organizations, as the location of our first office because this will enable us to connect with international start-ups more easily. We already feel comfortable collaborating with WeWork and working in the WeWork space. We will share more insights into my WeWork experience with you at a later date!
Digital Havas is Tokyo’s top digital marketing agency and has an impressive track record of successfully facilitating the process by which international enterprises penetrate the Japanese market.
