Online course offering MasterClass is a way to learn how to do your favorite things from the experts in those fields. For aspiring basketball players who want to get tips from Stephen Curry, or novice fashion designers who would love to hear from Marc Jacobs on how he launched his fashion empire, MasterClass is the place to go. The educational hub just expanded to include seven new teachers and an unlimited access option.
David Rogier is the CEO of MasterClass and he joins us to explain how he got Stephen Curry and Helen Mirren to come on and do a class. Rogier explains that Mirren was an easy sell because she was eager to share her craft in a way she never had before.
MasterClass has grown and improved since launch. Earlier this year, MasterClass raised $35 million in a Series C round, bringing the company to $56.4 million to date.
