Brad Hargreaves of General Assembly & Common - Startup Cities

We are happy to welcome Brad Hargreaves, CEO & Founder of Common | Co-Founder of General Assembly, to the next installation of the Startup Cities event series. The event format will be a fireside chat and networking session.

Brad is the founder and CEO of Common. Common is dedicated to making housing better by providing flexible, community-minded shared homes. Previously, he co-founded General Assembly, a global education institution with campuses in more than 15 cities worldwide. As part of the General Assembly founding team, Brad led the growth of the company's education business from its launch in 2011 into a global institution with over a dozen campuses. Most recently, he was a Venture Partner at Maveron, General Assembly's lead investor. Brad has been named to Vanity Fair’s “The Next Establishment”, Inc Magazine’s “30 Under 30”, and Business Insider’s “Silicon Alley 100”.

The majority of humans live in urban areas, and billions more will in the coming decades. The only way to prepare for this massive shift is to create new cities and innovate existing ones. We are hosting an event to champion ideas of treating cities just like startups. Join us to chat about entrepreneurship, urbanism, and decentralization. We hope to demystify the concepts of starting new types of societies.
