Udemy’s mission is to make top-quality content from the world’s experts available to anyone, anywhere. We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve raised $32 million in Series C financing to help Udemy grow and develop in some important ways. We’ll broaden and deepen our content library, expand our international presence and enhance product offerings. We’re also dedicating new funds to support Udemy’s dynamic community of instructors as they share top-notch content with students around the globe.

We’re amazed every day at the passion and dedication of our students and instructors. Thanks to our student and instructor community, we’ve hit some amazing milestones over the past year:

  • More than 3 million students call Udemy home, with the number of Udemy students growing by over 50% since January of this year.
  • Over 8,000 expert instructors have created more than 16,000 courses in ten languages.
  • 30%+ of Udemy students consume courses on their iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices.
  • We launched Udemy for Organizations to help companies manage, develop and grow their teams.

This latest round of funding, led by Norwest Venture Partners with Insight Venture Partners and MHS Capital, brings Udemy’s total financing to $48 million since our 2010 founding.

We’re beyond passionate about enabling everyone to learn the skills needed to keep pace in today’s world. Thanks to all of you for being part of the Udemy journey so far. We’re looking forward to working together to dramatically change how skills are shared on a global scale.
