If your college education didn't adequately prepare you to work at a tech startup, General Assembly might be able to help. The company has created a network of campuses that offer classes in technology, business and design.
"Education is in need of some real innovation," co-founder Matthew Brimer says. "[It is] an industry that hasn't changed much in centuries, arguably, and yet the world is changing, technology is changing, the jobs that are available, parts of the economy are growing, all that's changing."
General Assembly offers eight week deep dives into topics, such as data science and user experience design. It also offers shorter lessons, including a three-session crash course in raising startup capital, taught by a partner at a VC firm.
