Udemy Instructors, 

 

As you may have already read, we’re sharing some great news today. Benesse, our long-time strategic partner in Japan, is investing $50 million in Udemy with a valuation of $2 billion. This investment demonstrates Benesse’s confidence in us and our work together and offers an exciting opportunity for us to further invest in scaling Udemy around the world.

 

I believe we’re still in the earliest days of realizing the potential of learning online, and I’m incredibly optimistic about our shared future. Together, we’re partners in bringing the world’s expertise to millions of students around the world and enabling people everywhere to progress in their professions and their passions.

 

We’re grateful that each of you made the decision to teach on Udemy, and we’re eager to move even more boldly to help share your knowledge with the world and improve lives through learning.

 

Cheers to our continued partnership, 

Gregg

I'm a top instructor in the Russian-speaking marketplace which is actively developing nowadays. I was thinking for some time about the possibility to build some kind of an instructor's community here in Moscow, Russia. That could help to grow the Russian-speaking market even quicker. That would be super cool if someday Udemy had opened another office in Moscow))) I would also be proud of being one of Udemy's team members. Is there any kind of option to collaborate with Udemy in this field?

Congrats Udemy team & Gregg, that's an amazing achievement and a great valuation. 

 

I can't wait to see the accelerated growth in Udemy's team! 

 

Any pointers as to where that money will be spent? Engineering? UFB? Marketing? New revenue avenues?
