NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 24, 2014) - One Month (https://onemonth.com/) announced today that it will be expanding its accelerated learning curriculum after closing a $770,000 seed round. The new curriculum will include courses on Front-end Web Development, Growth Hacking, Online Payments, Web Security, and Swift -- Apple's new programming language.
The company initially made waves early last year when they launched One Month Rails, a Ruby on Rails course for beginners. The course, which broke record sales on online learning platform Skillshare, continues to remain one of the top selling programming courses of all time.
Since then co-founders Mattan Griffel and Chris Castiglione have created an entire online education platform based on their accelerated learning philosophy. Their approach has resonated with over 14,500 students and counting.
One Month's goal is simple -- empower people to change their lives by learning real-world skills, in a short amount of time. The One Month team is comprised of education thought-leaders and self-taught technology experts working to build the most effective way to learn online.
