Coursera raises $103 Million in Series E round of financing

Today, we’re happy to share that Coursera has raised an additional $103 million of investment in a Series E equity round. With this round, we welcome SEEK Group, a global leader in investing, scaling and operating online employment and education businesses, as our new investor. Existing investors Future Fund and NEA also joined the round.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution, marked by advancements in automation and artificial intelligence, is dramatically reshaping our lives, businesses, and jobs. Coursera is at the forefront of preparing individuals, companies, and governments to address these challenges head-on and turn this disruption into an opportunity. The additional funding gives us the resources and flexibility to further expand internationally and to accelerate the development of a learning platform that currently serves 40 million learners, 1,800 businesses, and over 150 top universities.

Even with our rapid growth and global reach, we still have so much more to do. As the future of work and the future of learning converge, there is an enormous opportunity for us to make the world’s best education available to hundreds of millions around the world and change the way they learn.  We are so grateful to our learners, partners, enterprise customers, and employees who helped us get to this point and will propel our innovation and growth in the years ahead.
