Launched in 2015, MasterClass is the streaming platform where anyone can learn from the world’s best.

What if you could take acting classes with Helen Mirren? Or cooking classes with Gordon Ramsay? Or filmmaking classes with Martin Scorsese? MasterClass has turned what sounds like a farfetched vision that would only ever be accessible by a few into a reality for everyone, anywhere.

At Atomico, we embrace continuous learning because our job is to see into the future. In order to keep up with technology, we’ve got to stay curious. That’s why we love founders who also share our passion for education at any age and enabling that to be a reality for anyone.

By creating meaningful and engaging learning experiences, through online video taught by a roster of world-class experts and renowned instructors, MasterClass has built a premier online education platform that redefines the digital learning experience. Making it possible for everyone to have access to the world’s greatest masters.

MasterClass launched in 2015 with three classes; and in three years, the company has grown its offering to 39 classes from the world’s greatest minds in film and television, cooking, photography, sports, writing, science, and more. In 2018, MasterClass added classes with Spike Lee (filmmaking), Judd Apatow (comedy), and Margaret Atwood (creative writing), among others, and expanded into new categories with classes from Chris Hadfield (space exploration), and Daniel Negreanu (poker). The company has a robust pipeline of new classes and categories set to launch through the end of this year, which will bring its growing catalogue to more than 50 classes, with more than a thousand lessons.
