Our Values

Champion the Mission

Our mission is two fold:

Help creators make a sustainable living doing what they love = teaching.

Reimagine the future of learning, leaving the industrial age behind led by creators we trust, with peers for support/accountability, live and accessible from anywhere in the world

Be A Creator


Be a creator and entrepreneur yourself.

Have deep empathy for the creative process, creator journey and entrepreneurship.

Creator success is our success

Growth  Mindset

We value a growth mindset and lifelong learning

Learn by doing:  test, iterate, feedback, learn

Value pursuit of excellence and high performance not burnout

Simplify & Move Fast with Judgment

Choose the simplest path (not the easiest path).

Most decisions are reversible. It's better to be faster to insight than take too long to get feedback

Net Positive, Conscious & Inclusive

We want not only our intention but our impact to be net positive in the world

Build a culture that is conscious of our impact on others and intentional in our design and actions

Build a company that is diverse and inclusive to all

Have fun, Enjoy the Journey

Enjoy the freedom that comes with remote work and do your best work anywhere in the world

Have fun by making this place the best place to work and contribute to our culture

Be present, the joy is in the journey!

What Investors are saying

Wattpad, a platform for nearly 100MM users, pioneered social and serial storytelling - a format both creators and readers love. Disco is pioneering social and serial learning - a format both creators and learners want - making learning fun, and highly engaging. Candice and Chris also understand how important creator monetization is, we learned this at Wattpad.

Ivan Yuen
Co-founder, Wattpad

Disco realizes that ed tech and all innovation happens at the edge, where creators live. We are excited to back this all star team pioneering the future of creator led live learning experiences.

Deborah Quazzo
Managing Partner, GSV

Disco reminds me a lot of what we did in commerce. We empowered entrepreneurs to go direct to customers and disrupt traditional retail, just like Disco is enabling creators to disrupt traditional education.
The team is mission driven: helping creators be entrepreneurs with the ability to own their brand, customers and revenue.
