General Assembly, an educational startup that offers tech courses, said it would open its second Los Angeles campus later this year in downtown’s Arts District. The New York company opened a campus in Santa Monica in 2012.
The downtown location will offer full- and part-time programming in Web development, user experience design, digital marketing, data science and more.
“Los Angeles is a dynamic and expansive city with a thriving technology economy and a need for people who have technology knowledge and skills,” Regional Director S. Ryan Meyer said in a statement. “We are expanding that to serve the broader geographic area.”
GA announced earlier this year a $35 million Series C round that brought its total funding to $49.3 million. That round was led by Institutional Venture Partners with participating investors GSV Capital, Rethink Education, Maveron and Western Technology Investment.
