To differentiate its losses from the likes of Uber and Lyft, WeWork said its losses should be seen as “investments.” 

“We have grown significantly since our inception,” the company said in the filing. “Our membership base has grown by over 100% every year since 2014. It took us more than seven years to achieve $1 billion of run-rate revenue, but only one additional year to reach $2 billion of run-rate revenue and just six months to reach $3 billion of run-rate revenue.”
