“Our core mission,” said Galvanize CEO Jim Deters, “is to give anyone who has the aptitude and ability for the rigors of our program, access to the latest in tech education and to the network of support they will need to acquire a fulfilling job in the 21st century economy. Our mission is in harmony with the State and City’s commitment to create opportunities for upward mobility. We are grateful to Governor Cuomo and the Empire State Development board. We see this grant as not only an investment in Galvanize, but also in the future of New York. We look forward to being a partner with the City and the State in building that future.”
