WeWork expands on the idea of coworking space by welcoming the public.  
WeWork has launched a new kind of coworking space with retail and food called Made By We. Located in New York, it is open to the public and anyone can book a desk or a meeting space. Nearly 100 seats can be booked on-demand or by pre-booking via the website. The concept doubles as a cafe and a shop, which sells products made by members of the “We community.” This combination of shared office and sales space will surely be watched by retailers.
WeWork, which currently has 603 opened or coming soon locations in 100 cities around the world also launched earlier this week its own food tech accelerator located in NYC.

Breaking News! 
7-Eleven Inc., the world’s largest convenience store chain, entered India in partnership with Kishore Biyani’s Future Group one of the top Indian country Retailer.
Why it is so important?
Retail market is booming in India and is expected to grow from around $672 billion in 2016 to $1.1 trillion by 2020. But this is a kind of old news only.

This operation might be the proper answer to solve it.
Because Indian are used to small shops nearby their home and they love the flexibility of 24/7 which is not the case for the moment. Here, they could get a larger range of products, pay by credit card or mobile…
From a business point of view , it enables 7-Eleven to attack easily Tier 2 and 3 where the major growth is. Also, a well structured master franchise could make sense for both partners…

#Mobility
Seems that things are getting hard for the free floating giants outside of China.
Ofo has left Paris, Mobike seems to take the same path, while it has already announced it was leaving India, Thailand, Singapore…
Vandalism can be one point that explains why free floating bikes suffer outside of China. There is also competition with docked bikes and moreover electric scooters that spread all the major cities in the last few months.
Who will win this battle ? Maybe the free-floating mobility was only a flash in the pan…
