Ten years ago, I was a network engineer at Vodafone dreaming about my future. Today, I am the proud co-founder and CEO of Preply, a global marketplace for online language learning that connects 40,000 tutors teaching over 50 languages to over 100,000 students every month.
A lot can happen in ten years.
As a company, we can credit our success to many factors: an incredible team, a great product and many hours of hard work. But we wouldn’t be where we are today without capital. Preply raised $1.3M (nearly €1.16M) in 2016; $4M (€3.30M) in 2018; and $10M (approx €8.26M) in 2020. Our investors are just as diverse as the languages we teach on our platform, ranging from Polish and German to British and French.
