Funding announcement: spins out and raises $6M

Today is a big day for our team. 

We're proud to announce two things: 

1. Our team building has spun out of Discovery Communications and is now an independent company.

2. As part of the spin out, Discovery Communications has invested in our new company, along with Chicago's best tech investors: Pritzker Group, Origin Ventures, Chicago Ventures and Corazon Capital for a $6M round of funding. 

The last year has been a great ride, but there is no finish line. This is just the beginning and we couldn't be happier with the great partners joining in this mission. Now, onward to bring the web's best learning content in one place, for millions of people around the world to enjoy and have fun learning everyday!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us in so many ways.

Never stop learning.
