General Assembly Opening New Campus in Berlin

(generalassemb.ly/)

General Assembly, the New York-based startup school for technology and design that announced its expansion to Boston just last week, is planning to open a second international campus, this time in the burgeoning tech belly of Berlin. G.A. is teaming up with Deutsche Telekom, a German telecommunications company, to create a co-working office and host classes, according to Business Insider. The campus will launch this summer.

Berlin has drummed up attention in recent months for its “punk rock” startup scene, and has birthed some pretty big-name startups, like audio-sharing service¬†Soundcloud.¬†So it makes sense that Berlin would be G.A.’s next target–though the city did rank pretty low on Startup Genome’s list of top 25 startup hubs. Perhaps G.A. can help Berlin claw its way past that #17 ranking.
