Galvanize and Zayo Scale Connectivity for Tech Start-Ups

Global bandwidth infrastructure services provider, Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), and Galvanize, a network of urban campuses for hackademics, digital innovators and entrepreneurs, announced today a collaborative effort to bolster Galvanize’s highly-connected human-to-human network with Zayo’s advanced multi-Gigabit fiber network.

“The digital ecosystem is a critical ingredient to a vibrant tech start-up and learning environment,” said Chris Morley, president of sales and marketing at Zayo. “We believe our services will enable the success of Galvanize members as well as provide us early exposure to future technology leaders who may become great long-term Zayo customers.”

Galvanize community members at campus locations in Denver, Boulder and San Francisco have access to services typically out of reach for smaller start-ups, including advice from expert mentors and investors, and entrepreneur-focused workshops. Zayo’s scalable data center, cloud services and internet connectivity, and virtually unlimited bandwidth enable entrepreneurs to adapt the latest technologies, collaborate more effectively, and ultimately grow their businesses.

“Bandwidth is like oxygen to start-ups, it’s absolutely critical to a company’s success,” said Jim Deters, co-founder and CEO of Galvanize. “Many of our members have teams working on multiple campuses. Creating a world-class infrastructure to support the communication and connectivity between members and across campuses is part of our mission.”

As key players in the entrepreneurial community in Colorado and across the U.S., the collaboration between Galvanize and Zayo elevates community-based learning and the collective journeys of digital innovators. Together, Galvanize and Zayo will host tech-focused events to build relationships with emerging start-ups and better align with tech talent across the U.S.
