What we're about

Grand Circus is a proud downtown Detroit company, and we’re passionate about bridging the gap between Detroiters and the businesses here who want to hire great people. The way we do that is through intensive bootcamps that teach people the skills they need to be extremely valuable to local technology companies. We listen to employers to understand what skills they need, so we only offer bootcamps that have been confirmed by the business community. You can learn more about our bootcamps here, but the long story short is that they’re about 8 weeks long and incorporate everything our students need to start a new career – tech skills, soft skills, interaction with industry pros, and mixers with employers. In addition to our bootcamps, we’re here for the tech community more broadly. We host 50+ entrepreneurs in our coworking space, put on events and seminars, and have programs at local high schools to teach kids how to code. If you can’t tell already, we love Detroit, its people, and the exciting things that are happening here.
