Our Story

Learning and community, together at last.

We believe decentralized learning communities will be the most effective way to create change in the world. These niche, purpose-built learning communities have the power to shape the future of education and are only growing as the world looks to remote work and more sustainable ways to gather.

That’s why we’ve committed our life’s work to offering learning pioneers the tools and support to build and grow global learning communities.

Meet the Founders

Co-founders Candice Faktor and Chris Sukornyk are long-time friends and serial entrepreneurs passionate about community, learning, and building world-class platforms.

Before co-founding Disco, Candice scaled Wattpad to 80 MM users, making it the world’s largest platform for creators to share their stories (sold in January 2021, for US $660MM). And Chris founded six other venture-backed startups, most recently Chango (acquired in 2015).
