Our Mission

We believe in making education and growth accessible to anyone – especially underrepresented groups in the tech industry. Whether you’re a founder, student, or just someone who wants to level up their career, we want Galvanize to be a welcoming, inclusive place where you can take the next step in your journey.

Our Community

Traditionally, industry and education have existed in separate worlds. At Galvanize, we’re bridging this longstanding gap by bringing industry partners, ambitious students, world-class education, and passionate founders under one roof. This is the Galvanize community.

Our Story

Our founders, Jim Deters, Lawrence Mandes, and Chris Onan, started Galvanize in 2012 with a bold vision: build a community to provide entrepreneurs and learners with life-changing opportunities for growth. Technology has made it possible for anyone with fortitude and resourcefulness to change the world for the better. Galvanize is the fuel to propel anyone to level up.
