How is coursera doing ? Any early signs of hitting recession like other start ups or lack of funding causing any future layoffs ? How’s the work culture there ? Any plans for IPO ?
- Udemy: they don’t own the content, only %10 to %20 of revenue is real revenue, the rest goes to instructors.
udacity: they own the content but content creation is too expensive, they laid off a lot of people for some reason
Coursera: similar to udemy they split the revenue, their content is pretty academic, they are trying to improve their enterprise to diversify the revenue but their burn rate is so high. Personally I believe another layoff cycle is gonna happen
Lynda: biggest success so far was getting sold to LinkedIn
Plural sight: this is the only company they might survive in this domain, I think they have a good business model

- Synack rys43jumoreThey raised Series D in 2017, so they’ll be due for another funding round or an exit in 2019, maybe early 2020. Their Glassdoor is pretty bad compared to other startups.
- How’s Udacity doing ? Isn’t education the next big thing? Anyone from coursera care to add how is the company doing ?
