The CourseHorse Mission
CourseHorse's mission is to centralize and curate learning opportunities to increase ease and confidence in discovering your path to personal enrichment. We believe that learning is a lifelong pursuit, and our goal is simple: to make that pursuit easier. We work hard to find the best courses and classes that your city has to offer, and then we organize them into a single, beautiful interface that makes them much easier to discover & book online.
CourseHorse has been live for about a year now, and already we've partnered with over 600 class providers, totaling over 25,000 classes. Our sleek, stylish frontend discover experience sits on top of a powerful course management system that does the hard work of managing teachers, students, classes & enrollments. We've launched in two cities (New York & Los Angeles), and have partnered with some of the biggest publishers out there to broadcast our classes across the web, including TimeOut NY, Serious Eats, and several others. We've also raised funds from some of New York's best angel investors, and we've grown about 6X in the last 6 months.
Our team is made up of young 20-somethings that all have one thing in common - extraordinary hustle. Sure, we have deep education experience, product development & marketing expertise, and some of the finest technology chops out there (not to mention extraordinary networks of people willing to help us), but it is our hustle that sets us apart. That, and our dazzling wit...
Life at CourseHorse
We're a casual group of go-givers looking for people who want to be friends with the people they work with. Our environment is fast paced - we are always signing on new schools, talking to customers, pushing a new version of the website to production or one of a million other things. Yet at the same time, we take the time to show we care about our customers, our schools, and of course our team members. We're open about what we're struggling with, and we cheer loudly to celebrate our successes.
