As we reviewed recent VC deals, we thought that Galvanize bore a little deeper dive, and hence they are our FintekNews Deal of the Day. Galvanize is a bit of a hybrid between a technical campus, an accelerator and a workspace environment, so that makes it rather unque. Essentially, it’s a college for tech start ups (inclusive of fintechs), and they have 9 locations in total – 2 in Denver, where they are headquartered and also locations in Boulder, Fort Collins, Austin, Phoenix, NYC, San Francisco & Seattle.
According to their website: We are the learning community for tech where you can become a web developer, data scientist, or build your startup.
They also position themselves as a corporate training resource for IT. Again from their website – “Build Technical Resilience. Transform your teams. Deliver high-quality software, analytics, and data products”
All in all, a really interesting entity.
