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.
Disco realizes that live learning is the future and creators and organizations of all sizes need a Shopify-like platform to run their live learning business. We are excited to back this all-star team pioneering the future of live learning.
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.
