We have exciting news. Since launching in May, we’ve been blown away by the response to our classes. We couldn’t ask for more amazing instructors or students! Today we are announcing that we’ve raised $15 million in Series B funding to continue our mission to make it possible for anyone in the world to learn from the very best. The Series B was led by New Enterprise Associates, Inc. (NEA) (Partner: Rick Yang). Before this latest round, we raised a $4.5 million Series A led by Javelin Venture Partners (Partner: Alex Gurevich) and two seed rounds totaling $1.9 million both led by Harrison Metal (Founder: Michael Dearing). Our other investors include: Bloomberg Beta, Novel TMT Ventures, Advancit Capital, WME Ventures, Downey Ventures, Usher, Yan-David Erlich and Matthew Rutler (MX Investments).
We couldn’t ask for better investors and are very excited to create more classes, build more interactive tools and grow the MasterClass team.
