General Assembly is a global network for entrepreneurs seeking opportunity and education in technology, business and design with campuses located in New York City, London, Berlin, San Francisco, Sydney, Boston and now...Los Angeles!
We offer education in a myriad of ways -- from 90-minute classes like New Startup Business Models and half-day workshops on the tactics of fundraising to 10-week courses in front-end web development and user experience design. Why do we do what we do? By providing designers, developers, entrepreneurs and complete beginners with the skills necessary to compete in a technology-driven workplace, GA is closing the gap between the unemployed and the thousands of open jobs and working to solve a generation-defining problem.
