General Assembly (school)

General Assembly is a private, for-profit education organization founded by CEO Jake Schwartz, Adam Pritzker, Matthew Brimer, and Brad Hargreaves in early 2011.

General Assembly maintains campuses in numerous countries around the world to teach entrepreneurs and business professionals practical technology skills. It provides courses in mobile and web development, data science, product management, and other digital-related courses.

General Assembly began in early 2011 as a co-working space in Midtown Manhattan, and evolved into a private school. It built its first campus in the Flatiron District with a grant from the New York City Economic Development Corporation. In 2015 the company raised $70 million in venture capital funding. As of September 2016, General Assembly has 15 campus locations on 4 continents, and plans to expand in Silicon Valley or near San Jose and possibly in Miami. In April 2018, human resources services company Adecco Group announced they were acquiring General Assembly for $413 million.
