Serene Al-Momen and her team were in a different coworking office when she heard that WeWork was opening up a space in suburban Virginia. She had already seen what WeWork has to offer, so it didn’t take much convincing for her to book a tour of the new building in Tysons.
“We felt like it was a good place for the team,” says Al-Momen. “It was just perfect.”
Al-Momen is the co-founder of Senseware, a platform that helps building owners, operators, and managers to monitor everything about their facilities, from energy use to equipment status. Nine months ago the company moved into WeWork Tysons. Al-Momen says her staff tells her they feel right at home in the space just outside of D.C.
“I like the fact that the design is nice and modern,” says Al-Momen. “It feels good to our team to come every morning to a place like this.”
WeWork is a global network of more than 150 coworking spaces that are specially designed to foster creativity and collaboration. WeWork’s mission is to encourage members to “make a life, not just a living,” and it accomplishes that through modern workspaces, opportunities to network with other professionals in their field, and connect with potential customers all over the world.
In WeWork’s 10 locations in and around D.C., there are spaces to accommodate companies of all sizes, from one-person start-ups to well-established corporations with hundreds employees. Al-Momen’s growing company is right in the middle, occupying a 38-desk office.
Each WeWork location has its own personality, drawing different types of members. WeWork K Street, located on one of the best-known thoroughfares in Northwest D.C., has a wide range of members, including lobbyists to law firms. WeWork Dupont Circle, on the other hand, has quite a few tech startups and nonprofit organizations.
A 20-minute drive from D.C., WeWork Tysons is a convenient, modern workspace in a three-story glass building. It’s a LEED-certified facility, cutting down significantly on its carbon footprint. It’s a hub for business, with the headquarters for Hilton, Booz Allen Hamilton, and others corporations nearby. The space is perfect for companies in areas like tech and contracting, as well as former employees of larger companies who have left to start their own businesses.
On top of that, WeWork Tysons is surrounded by two world-class shopping centers and dozens of dining and nightlife spots. Easy access to parking and public transportation makes it great for commuters.
Al-Momen says WeWork provides everything a business owner could possibly need, from a front-desk staff and printing services to common areas and conference rooms where they can huddle with colleagues or meet with a potential new client. And, of course, there are extras like fruit water and freshly brewed coffee always at the ready.
“It’s great,” says Al-Momen. “I can’t think of anything I could want that’s not offered.”

Need help dealing with anxiety, depression or stress?
If you’re struggling to cope with anxiety, depression or stress, our virtual psychotherapy services can help. We offer a confidential and convenient service that’s tailored to your needs.
In our practice, cognitive behavioral therapy (or CBT) is an important tool we use to provide effective relief for those facing anxiety and depression. We believe that cognitive change can be used to improve behaviors and emotions, thus allowing you to achieve mental wellness. By understanding the cognitive distortions that lead to negative thought patterns, we are able to create interventions tailored to each of our clients. This empowering approach can help you gain control of how your own thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors impact your experience. With CBT, our service provides an effective treatment that can bring long-term change and mental stability.
