Virtual live learning platform Disco raises $6 million CAD seed round

Mar 24, 2021

Toronto-based Disco , which has developed a platform allowing users to build live virtual learning experiences, has raised an oversubscribed $6 million CAD ($4.75 million USD) seed round of funding, as the market for virtual learning experiences continues to see traction. “Online learning has been as massive a behaviour shift as curbside pick up this past year.” – Sarah Lacy, Chairman Mom With this investment, Disco has raised approximately $5 million USD to date. Investors in the round included Quiet Capital, Golden Ventures, Inovia, and GSV, as well as a number of angel investors, including Wattpad co-founder Ivan Yuen, Shopify’s Satish Kanwar and Brandon Chu, and Clearbanc’s Michele Romanow. The proceeds will be used to bring Disco’s product to market and make additional hires. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a surge in demand for online learning. Beyond K-12 and post-secondary edtech products, recent skill-building platforms like Skillshare and Masterclass are appealing to those looking to hone their skills or learn new ones. A 2020 report from ResearchandMarkets.com indicated that the e-learning market is expected to display significant growth opportunities over the next five years. The Great Courses, an online learning service that offers a series of college-level audio and video courses, claims new subscriptions have tripled compared to before the COVID-19 pandemic. Disco is looking to be a part of this burgeoning market. The startup aims to help creators deliver a cohort-based live learning experience, offering users branding, live video, group chat, and the ability to scale beyond a workshop or course into what the company called “an ongoing learning community.” In an emailed statement to BetaKit, Disco co-founder Candice Faktor said that, similar to how Shopify focuses on merchants, Disco will focus on the creators looking to host live learning experiences. “Disco reminds me a lot of what we did in commerce,” added Shopify vice president of product and general manager of platform Brandon Chu. “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.”
