The French Embassy Teams up with General Assembly

May 2, 2013 | By French Culture

On Tuesday evening April 30, the French Embassy hosted its first “Introduction to the New York startup community” class with Matt Brimer, co-founder of General Assembly (GA). GA is an organization that aims to “transform thinkers into creators” through education and creates opportunities in technology, business, and design.

This free class provided a great orientation to acquaint attendees with the exciting technology scene in New York City and gave them an inside scoop on ways to connect and get involved.

GA offers classes all around the world in locations including Berlin, London, Hong-Kong,  and Sydney and shows that the world of start-ups and new-tech is above all a border-free community. This French Embassy-hosted class reinforced this idea of bringing cultures and communities together around a common ideal: that of innovation and creation.
