Ohmygosh THIS is EXACTLY what I am talking about, thinking about, dreaming about. Especially after reading A Millionaire’s Education. I can only dream of going here.
General Assembly, founded in January 2011 in a 20,000-square-foot loft in New York’s Flatiron District by four friends in their late twenties and early thirties, is a campus for technology, design, and entrepreneurship. It’s not a degree-granting college; it’s not a high school; it’s not a traditional trade school. It’s something new—augmented education, a stopgap for the startup economy.
In the future of education, some General Assembly may be required.
