The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that it has formed a partnership with General Assembly, a global company that transforms thinkers into creators through education and opportunity in technology, business, and design.
Through this unique relationship, GA will offer BCC members free Livestreams, discounts for relevant classes and workshops, and access to top talent in the GA community. The website for Chamber members to access is https://generalassemb.ly/hello/bcc. The first online workshop will take place Saturday, February 9.
"Technology is the cornerstone of the way businesses -- both big and small -- thrive in today's economy," said Carlo A. Scissura, President & CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. "Our partnership with General Assembly will allow the organization and our nearly 1,100 members to take advantage of the technological advances of this great company. There is no doubt that in order for businesses to thrive they must innovate and make use of technology to better serve their customers and community. From art and architecture, fashion and design, to mom and pop and big business, all must better understand the potential technology holds for commerce. GA will bring clear understanding of how innovation can be used to better business and Brooklyn and the Chamber."
"General Assembly was started as a community for entrepreneurs in New York. We are excited to continue our commitment to helping people start, build, and grow businesses through our high-quality education and unique opportunities in technology, business, and design," said Matthew Brimer, co-founder of General Assembly.
The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce encourages all of its members to explore the many classes, workshops, courses, and events General Assembly has to offer. This partnership is an exciting step and the Chamber looks forward to future collaborations between both organizations. Technology is the future of business growth and development and it is essential that all businesses get, and stay ahead of the curve in order to thrive.
