Shipping Up To Boston

General Assembly Expands to Boston

MIT makes for a good neighbor, we hear.

generalassembly General Assembly Expands to BostonLooks like the scuttlebutt is fact and General Assembly is expanding to the frigid north. The Boston Globe reports that in June, the tech-campus-cum-coworking-space will launch classes based in the Cambridge Innovation Center, in Kendall Square. Conveniently, the area is also home to a massive talent pool in the form of MIT. We wonder if those Tetris kids are cooking up some kind of startup.

General Assembly hasn’t announced the classes to be offered, but cofounder Adam Pritzker told the Globe that the initial schedule will be arranged by a New York producer and that they’ll likely soon hire a local. In his comments to the paper, Mr. Pritzker was already evangelizing GA to the locals:

“All of our offerings take place in a social environment,” says Pritzker. “Everybody is building a project. They’re very goal-oriented. People are looking to start a company, or level up at work.”

We’ve reached out to General Assembly and will update when we receive more detail.
