Palo Alto, Ca.-based Udemy, competed a few weeks ago at our Vator Splash event in San Francisco. The company's Co-founder, Gagan Biyani presented his pitch on stage in front of several hundreds of entrepreneurs and investors. Here's the video we captured and a summary of what the company is working on.
Udemy's tagline, "academy of you," describes it perfectly. The startup has built an open platform which lets users teach or learn online from one another. All the technology is Web-based so instructors don't need to deal with any complications in setting up their virtual classes. For example, Udemy offers a live virtual conferencing and classroom tool, which can all be used simply on the site. The company says it will focus on a specific niche: Poker education, and then move onto additional markets where it seems consumers paying.
