Hello, Neumann… In this AHC episode, we are going to discuss the rise and fall of WeWork co-founder, Adam Neumann. Neumann set out to reinvent the workspace for the 21st century, and in the process, raised and then lost a whole bunch of investor money. But was WeWork his true passion? Or was it his desire to become the world’s first trillionaire? Or just maybe, the first person to live forever? We’ll dive into these questions and a whole lot more in this AHC Podcast.
