Co-working’s ubiquity in Miami just reached a whole new level. Today, Mayor Francis Suarez announced a long-term partnership between the City of Miami and co-working company WeWork. New or relocating entrepreneurs and companies will be able to use a referral program with discounted rates for access to WeWork’s network of workspace, amenities and community networking.

The referral program is laid out via a website portal at we.co/miamireferral and the discount can be used at WeWork Miami locations, subject to availability, by businesses new to Miami, those being developed or looking to grow in the city but have not used WeWork space in the past.

“As Miami’s entrepreneurial scene continues to expand and diversify, we must focus on finding unique ways to support this growth. Today’s announcement is another way in which we are telling the world that Miami is open for business,” Mayor Suarez said in a press release. “By partnering with a company like WeWork that is shaping the future of the way we do business, we demonstrate our intention to not just support growth, but nourish it as well. Miami, which has been ranked first in startups in the nation, combined with WeWork’s business model, is facilitating growth in the community.”

WeWork currently boasts five Miami locations, and just recently opened an outpost in Coral Gables. According to the Miami Herald, Miami is the country’s No. 1 city for co-working space.
