Galvanize announces plans to expand to Phoenix with a new campus scheduled to open in 2016

Galvanize, a technology education company that trains students in software development and data science, announced plans today to expand to the Phoenix area in partnership with the city of Phoenix and Allstate Insurance Company. Planned to open next year, Galvanize will train more than 100 software developers in 2016, with Allstate already committing to hiring 100-150 eligible graduates of the program.

“Greater Phoenix is seeing a lot of interest from the tech industry, which is creating quite the buzz nationally for the market. Having locally grown tech companies such as WebPT elevates the market’s notoriety across the U.S. We could not be more excited to see Galvanize expand to the Warehouse District,” said Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “Job growth in the software industry in Greater Phoenix is outpacing the national average, and we are going to continue to seeing that growth as more and more companies consider the market for expansion.”
