OK, I realise that you probably already all know that the General Assembly classes have been running in Sydney over the last few weeks... The concept which started in New York has been welcomely received here in Australia with great responses to the sessions already run. I have to admit the delay on putting info up about these courses is just because Riley (The guy making all this happen from GA Aus) and I just kept missing each other! We finally got to catch up today and he shared the awesome sauce that is the GA courses running here in Sydney and his plans for national expansion! Exciting!
Anyway, because Riley is such a nice guy, he has agreed that the remaining courses he has scheduled will be awesome for BizSpark members wanting to learn how to best succeed in the startup world, he has put together an offer for all BizSpark members to receive a 15% discount for the courses! whoohoo! Thanks!
