Comcast Collaborates With Galvanize To Power Entrepreneurs

Stocks in this article: CMCSACMCSK

Comcast Corporation, one of the nation's leading providers of information and communications products and services, announced that Galvanize has selected Comcast Business Class Ethernet to provide bandwidth connectivity to its entrepreneur and startup company members.

Galvanize is an innovation ecosystem that provides capital, community and curriculum to some of Denver’s leading digital entrepreneurs and hottest technology startups, including ROXIMITY, Uber, GoSpotCheck, Forkly, and others.

“We chose Comcast because they were not only the clear leader for Business Class Ethernet, but they came highly recommended from trusted friends, colleagues, and other businesses in the area,” said Jim Deters, founder of Galvanize. “Comcast's strong interest in aligning with a community focused on innovation affirmed in our mind that we had found the right partner. The planning, guidance, and delivery provided by the Comcast team gave all the companies in our space rock solid service on which to run their businesses. High-speed connectivity is like oxygen to our community – it must be insanely fast, plentiful and be reliable.”

Galvanize creates a community for startups that range in size and growth, starting with a community area with “hot desks,” which are designed for the earliest of startups or solo innovators working remotely. For companies further along on the growth continuum, Galvanize offers permanent desks as well as “G Suites,” which remain part of the larger entrepreneurial community. Galvanize’s building is open to its members 24/7 and also features Gather, a full-service café for the public and community to come together, work and create. However, the community built within Galvanize is the true differentiator for entrepreneurs and startups. Galvanize creates a community that is a sum greater than its parts, allowing for knowledge sharing across company lines and varying disciplines.

Because Internet security and speed were primary considerations at Galvanize, Comcast installed both an Ethernet Dedicated Internet (EDI) and Ethernet Private Line (EPL) connection. Designed for organizations needing more bandwidth and a highly secure, dedicated connection between their existing Local Area Network and the public Internet, Ethernet Dedicated Internet provides an Ethernet Virtual Connection from the Galvanize location to a Comcast Internet Point of Presence router. The building is connected to 300 Mbps of service to start, which is scalable to 2 Gbps.
