We’re excited to share new funding from Adobe, the global leader in creative software. This raise is part of the Series D round announced this summer.
A shared commitment to growing a global creative community and promoting digital education has made Adobe and Skillshare natural partners. With this new funding, Skillshare will further invest in creating more localized experiences for international members, enabling even more creative discovery for its growing community of 12 million members, and supporting Skillshare teachers with new tools and opportunities.
The Skillshare community has always loved to learn Adobe’s suite of tools. In fact, more than 30% of Skillshare classes feature Adobe products and, in 2019, Adobe partnered with Skillshare to provide exclusive tutorials with leading illustrators in connection with the launch of Fresco, Adobe’s next-generation painting and drawing app.
In a year that will be defined by the pandemic and social unrest, Skillshare has seen a surge in new members joining to cultivate creative skills as a way to process, grow, and activate. At the same time, more creative professionals are turning to Skillshare to hone their talent, including training themselves on the latest software from Adobe.
Skillshare strongly believes that creativity will be at the heart of the global rebuild, and is proud to continue partnering with Adobe to make the creative life possible for everyone around the world.
