In eight years, Jake Schwartz helped take General Assembly from a single learning center to a network of business and tech courses with 20 campuses and 50,000 alumni around the world. In 2015, Schwartz was named one of Crain’s 40 under 40. The same year, General Assembly was declared the most innovative company in education by Fast Company.
