NYC’s Massive New Campus For Design, Technology, and Entrepeneurship
General Assembly is co-working loft space that promises start-ups, entrepreneurs, and curious minds an opportunity to congregate, collaborate, and create.
General Assembly is a 20,000 square ft. co-working, loft space that promises start-ups, entrepreneurs, and curious minds (starting in February) an opportunity to congregate, collaborate, and create.
This “urban campus,” which is partly funded by a $200,000 grant from NYCEDC, currently exists as a communal space for entrepreneurs and start-ups to exchange ideas and build the next generation of businesses. Other financial backers include corporate heavyweights Skype, Silicon Valley Bank, Rackspace and Wilson Sonsini.
However, in February, General Assembly will roll out programming — available to the general public on a first-come, registration basis — ranging from inspirational lectures to educational courses. Among the first set of courses are:
- Build Your Own Web Application
- Design Thinking with IDEO
- Lean User-Experience
- Law for Entrepreneurs
- AR & Computer Vision
The massive campus also includes a 200 person event space, 35-person classroom along with several smaller 15-person classrooms, library, dedicated working area with desks and couches, full kitchen and bar, and bike storage area.
You can register for the early bird special on classes here.
