1. November 2012–
Leading education platform, General Assembly (GA), has today sealed a deal to bring their technology, design and entrepreneurship classes to within Betahaus’ walls for at least the next two months. The announcement comes as the startup secured an additional $10 million in new funding via a US Securities and Exchange Commission filing (SEC), with GA yet to reveal who the investors are.
Attracted by Berlin’s reputation for rapidly expanding entrepreneurship, GA’s operation is the latest of 10 international campuses including New York, San Francisco and London.
90-minute and long-form courses offer instruction from specialists on all things startup: Getting your first million, engineering scalable web applications, deconstructing iOS interface design, public speaking and more. GA’s aim is to make up for digital age skill gaps for fresh entrepreneurs.
"We have an excellent number of well-skilled instructors flying in from all over the world," says Berlin GA producer Jessica Erickson. "We can clearly see an ever-growing momentum in Berlin, and one that swells with talent and innovation in every corner."
Aside from offering public classes, GA recently partnered with Deutsche Telekom to provide private classes and workshops for hub:raum’s accelerator program. GA will provide content and instructors to teach weekly modules from November to January. Each module will take place at betahaus.
GA’s public course offerings were confirmed today, with an additional wild card to be added to the mix at a later date.
