Grant Horsfield, founder of Naked Hub: $400 million sale to WeWork Startup Exits

    • Business

After finishing his MBA in South Africa and moving to China in 2006, Grant was interested in selling to the Chinese, not buying from them. He started Naked Group, a luxury brand of resorts, and Naked Hub, a community and design focused coworking company that was acquired by WeWork for $400 million after 3 years of being on the Chinese market.



On this episode of the Startup Exits Podcast, we chat with Grant about:

• Startup environment in China

• Startups in US vs China

• Future of the modern office

• WeWork acquisition

• Brand building

• Disrupting education


Grant is currently focused on disrupting education and making the lives of teachers better.
