One Month – Building a better way to learn

Founded in 2013
10 employees
Funding $2.55M / 1 round

Started in 2013 by Mattan Griffel and Chris Castiglione, One Month makes online courses that don’t suck. Everybody wants to develop a website, but few people know how to get started. At One Month you can learn the fundamentals of Ruby on Rails, Python, JavaScript, UX, HTML and Programming for Non-Programmers (for those of us that don’t even know where to start!) all in less than 30 days. And the best part? Each class comes with live access and feedback from your teachers. So when you get stuck (which we all do sometimes) you’ll have someone by your side cheering you on. One Month has been quoted in the press as being “Harvard meets Netflix,” which really says it all. With more than 50,000 students having graduated from One Month, now it’s your turn! What if you could learn anything in One Month?
