Leading global education marketplace.
Online learning and teaching marketplace with over 100,000 courses and 24 million students
A mission to improve lives through learning
Udemy was founded by Eren Bali, Gagan Biyani and Oktay Caglar in early 2010 to make educational content available to everyone, and the Company quickly began to see rapid adoption of its education marketplace by instructors and students around the world.
Ken Fox and Ron Shah got to know the Udemy team in early 2014 as the usage of the platform was accelerating and the Company had millions of users consuming content in new and existing categories in dozens of languages. As the team got to know Stripes' approach and philosophy over the next year, Udemy felt that our unique combination of operating and investing experiences coupled with our proven history of actively supporting our partner companies was the right fit for what they needed in Udemy’s next chapter, which led to Stripes leading the Series D financing in 2015. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with the Udemy team in the pursuit of its lofty and admirable goal of connecting life-long students around the world with the content they need to better themselves personally and professionally for many years to come.
