Education Company Galvanize Officially Opens Fort Collins Campus
Galvanize, a leader in industry-focused education, today announced it has officially opened its sixth campus in Fort Collins, a city consistently named one of the most exciting places for startups and founders in Colorado. Galvanize will open with 33 companies working out this new campus; this includes more than 100 individual members building their businesses in the campus’ two-story building located at 242 Linden Street in historic Old Town. The campus will house numerous startups, offer educational programs such as Galvanize Full Stack, and act as a community center for Fort Collins by hosting regular meetups and events.
“We’re proud to officially open our doors to Fort Collins’ energetic tech community,” said Jim Deters, Galvanize CEO and co-founder. “Galvanize is thrilled to help learners and founders level up their skills by providing access to education, connections, and resources. This is our newest location, and we’re excited to add Fort Collins to the fast-growing network of Galvanize campuses.”
Galvanize Fort Collins sits at what used to the the Sunset Event Center on Linden street. As part of construction, the entire building – which was originally completed in 1904 – was renovated using the original brick and rafters while also repurposing as much of the original wood as possible.
Galvanize Fort Collins members already include established companies such as Planning Edge and Jobzology, and rising Colorado startups like Community Funded. In the coming months, Galvanize will open up a public cafe, launch the 6-month Galvanize Full Stack web development program, and welcome more exciting Fort Collins startups and learners onto its campus.
