    He was the young businessman who appeared to have it all - a rocketing fortune, flash cars and sprawling properties. But ousted WeWork CEO Adam Neumann appears to have stuttered in life, with his recent ventures quickly failing to take off. Yesterday it emerged his newest project - a climate firm called FlowCarbon - was forced to come to a stop after the latest cryptocurrency crash. The firm planned to issue crypto backed by carbon credits so companies could offset a metric ton of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases. But on Sunday it said was pulling the plug on its planned launch due to plummeting coin prices, which have seen $2trillion wiped from the crypto-sphere in months. It marks the latest in a raft of failures for Neumann, following huge investments in around 50 startups from mortgage lending to AI. Meanwhile he is believed to have amassed a $1 billion real estate portfolio, with properties across the country including two worth $44million in Miami. Two years after he was ousted from WeWork Adam Neumann is at it again - founding companies, and...

    (CNN Business)Just weeks after WeWork's much-anticipated public offering, its infamous co-founder and former CEO Adam Neumann opened up about the lessons he's learned after he all but ran the company into the ground. "I've had a lot of time to think, and there've been multiple lessons and multiple regrets," said Neumann, speaking publicly for the first time in two years, at the New York Times DealBook Summit on Tuesday. IPOs are having their best year ever -- even better than the dot com boomUnder Neumann's leadership, WeWork raised billions of dollars, scaled its coworking operations to hundreds of cities around the world, and was valued at an eye-popping $47 billion during one investment round, a valuation that he acknowledged "went to his head." But also under Neumann, the company failed spectacularly in its attempt to go public in large part because its IPO paperwork revealed his unchecked power and numerous potential conflicts of interest, as well as WeWork's staggering losses. Last month, WeWork went public on the New York Stock Exchange at a valuation of about $9 billion. Despite being...
    The disgraced and ousted former WeWork CEO will receive a whopping $660 million payout from WeWork after the company made its public-market debut Thursday with a value of $9 billion and shares opening at $11.28 - just two years after the shared office space company nearly went bankrupt under his leadership. The valuation represents a marked drop from the $47 billion the company reportedly reached in 2019, when it first attempted to go public. But that attempt blew up in spectacular fashion in August of that year, resulting in then-CEO Adam Neumann's ousting, after investors grew wary of the eccentric CEO's exorbitant spending and increasingly erratic behavior. The losses spurred by that failure were then exacerbated by the pandemic.

After immigrating from Israel to New York City in 2001, he tried his hand at Krawlers — a line of baby clothing with padded knees — which flopped. When he co-founded the shared-workspace company WeWork three years later, it was with some of a $1 million wedding present he and wife, Rebekah, had received from her Long Island parents.

The fresh payout is part of a renegotiation of his massive 2019 exit package that sparked a long-running battle between Neumann and WeWork’s main investor SoftBank.

    Ousted WeWork founder Adam Neumann continues to receive lucrative considerations from the company, with a newly revealed $245 million stock award bringing the total value of his exit package to nearly $1 billion. Neumann was granted the enhanced stock award in February as part of a renegotiation of his 2019 exit package, intended to smooth the way for WeWork's public listing, according to regulatory filings first reported by the Wall Street Journal. It comes on top of Neumann's previously reported $200 million cash payout and favorable refinancing on $432 million in debt, benefits reserved to Neumann after he was forced out when SoftBank bailed out the company two years ago. An entity that Neumann controls was also allowed to sell $578 million in WeWork stock, though other investors were given the same option.

    WEWORK's former head is planning a "big" comeback after his $47bn co-working empire crumbled amid a series of shocking revelations. Disgraced former CEO Adam Neumann - who splurged millions on off-the-cuff purchases and blagged his way to the top - has "big plans" to return with a new business venture inspired by the coronavirus pandemic. 9Disgraced former CEO Adam Neumann has 'big plans' to return with a new business venture inspired by 'what happened in the world because of the pandemic'Credit: Getty 9Reports of dodgy dealings and business interests saw WeWork's value - and the reputation of its CEO - plummetCredit: Barcroft Media 9An insider says Neumann's next move 'involves what happened in the world because of the pandemic'Credit: Barcroft Media According to the NY Post, an insider said Neumann's next move "involves what happened in the world because of the pandemic." “He’s got big plans and he’s waiting for the right time to announce them," they added.

    Don’t count Adam Neumann out. The disgraced former WeWork CEO may have lost his empire, but an insider told The Post that Neumann, 41, is already plotting his mysterious next business move. “It involves what happened in the world because of the pandemic,” the insider said. “He’s got big plans and he’s waiting for the right time to announce them.” Neumann reportedly hasn’t seen the buzzy new Hulu documentary “WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn” that details his spectacular rise and fall as CEO of the once-hot office space startup. The entrepreneur is portrayed in the documentary as a charismatic but deluded charlatan who convinced financial movers and shakers — from Chase Bank’s Jamie Dimon to SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son — to mentor him and give him billions for WeWork before it all went very wrong in August 2019. Close friends and family members have “described” the film to him but the wunderkind-turned punchline doesn’t watch or read things about himself, an insider told The Post. Instead, he’s holed up in his Greenwich Village...
    WeWork co-founder and former Chief Executive Adam Neumann is expected to pull in an additional $50million on top of other benefits as part of his agreement with SoftBank Group Corp. People familiar with the matter say that the deal sets Neumann apart from other WeWork shareholders, the Wall Street Journal reports.  The deal calls for SoftBank to shell out the $50million payout to the 41-year-old and also extend a $430million loan it had given him in late 2019 by five years, according to sources familiar with the matter.  Additionally, Neumann's $50million in legal fees will also be paid by SoftBank. It is currently unknown how much SoftBank will pay in legal fees for other shareholders.    It would see Neumann take an almost $500 million pay cut in his payout from the shared-office-space company's new owner, SoftBank which was to buy back some of his shares Japan's SoftBank Group CEO Masayoshi Son headed the tech group's bid for WeWork Terms for the settlement can still change, sources told the WSJ.

    Adam Neumann, CEO of WeWork.Eduardo Munoz | Reuters WeWork co-founder Adam Neumann and SoftBank are nearing a settlement agreement that would entitle the former CEO to a payout of $480 million for approximately 25% of his shares in the company, a person familiar with the matter told CNBC's Deidre Bosa. That is half as many shares as SoftBank originally intended to buy, this person said. Should a deal be finalized, SoftBank would purchase approximately $1.5 billion of shares from early WeWork investors. The deal would represent 10.5% of WeWork shares, with the price at $19.19 per share, which is the price that was initially agreed upon, the person said. Neumann would remain a major shareholder in the company. SoftBank reached out to Neumann following a report last month that WeWork was in talks to combine with a SPAC affiliated with Bow Capital Management, the source said. Talks between Softbank and Neumann were first reported on Monday by the Wall Street Journal.VIDEO18:5518:55The California tech exodus: How big is it and what can be done to reverse it?TechRelated Tags Breaking News:...

Mathrani took the helm at WeWork in February to turn around the company after a disastrous period in which WeWork scrapped its initial public offering, fired its founder Adam Neumann and faced bankruptcy. In an interview during the Reuters Next conference, Mathrani said he expects many Americans will still want to work in an office environment despite the ongoing pandemic. “We’ve seen mental health reasons for people who want to come back to work [in the office],” he said. “I’m a firm believer that the office is an important part of everyday living.” WeWork locations in China “are...
    A SoftBank executive has said that WeWork founder Adam Neumann's $185 million consulting deal was cancelled after he violated the agreement. Marcelo Claure, who took over as WeWork's executive chairman after Neumann's ouster under investor pressure last year, made the remarks at a Wall Street Journal event on Monday.  'I don't think that consulting agreement is still in force,' Claure said of the deal with Neumann. 'I think Adam may have violated some of the parts of the consulting agreement, so that's no longer in effect.'  Claure, a top SoftBank executive charged with rescuing that company's investment in WeWork, declined to elaborate on how Neumann may have violated the agreement, saying it was the subject of pending litigation.

    In August 2018, workspace-sharing company WeWork hosted its seventh annual “summer camp,” a corporate retreat with a bacchanalian vibe. They had plenty to celebrate — the 8-year-old startup had just been valued at $35 billion, putting it ahead of Airbnb and SpaceX. The founders spared no expense in making the three-day London-based festivities something to remember. About 8,000 WeWork employees and their families from around the globe were treated to a performance by Lorde, motivational speeches by Deepak Chopra and perks such as lakeside meditation, beatboxing workshops and a staggering amount of booze. But the real money was spent on making sure the founders were pampered. Co-founder Miguel McKelvey had a one-page list of requests for his campsite, including a fire pit, Popchips and a weekend’s supply of beer, wine and coconut water. Adam Neumann, WeWork’s eccentric CEO and co-founder, had a slightly more elaborate list: a 3 ½-page rider that made most rock star demands seem quaint. According to “Billion Dollar Loser: The Epic Rise and Fall of WeWork” by Reeves Wiedeman (Little, Brown), while every other attendee slept on...
