About us

On a high level you can describe our product as a hybrid of Lynda and Twitch. is a live learning platform for watching premium live and on-demand projects on programming, game development, design, augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. We believe learning by watching and doing is the most practical and least time consuming way to improve your skills and become better at what you already do. Our product targets people who have already passed the beginner stage and want to build real products and experienced professionals already working in the industry.

LiveEdu is a fast-growing startup with a big vision for transforming how professionals and college students improve and sharpen their skills. We strongly believe in the power of informal learning. We started the company in Berlin, Germany and joined in 2015 Y-combinator in San Francisco Bay Area. The idea for LiveEdu was inspired by Michael J. Garbade playing games on Twitch and developing software in a Linux virtual box environment. The aha moment came with the question "what if there was a live streaming platform where people could share their projects and workflows with others and socialize".

We launched our alpha version in 2015 with the first category "programming" but will be expanding soon to cover game development, design, augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. LiveEdu has already been used by over 1,000,000 people from 194 countries since launch. More than 13,000 streamers have created over 200,000 video content. Viewers use LiveEdu for learning and socializing. Streamers use it for teaching and sharing their projects. We make money through LiveEdu Pro subscriptions and ads.

LiveEdu is targeting the $20 billion online learning market. We are a scrappy small start-up team and funded by European Pioneers, Y-combinator and private angels. We are a team of young engineers, designers and online marketers with work experience from Amazon, General Electric, Photobucket, Rebate Networks, Lashou and LiveEdu has been featured in Mashable, Lifehacker, Venturebeat, TechCrunch, Spiegel and many leading tech blogs in China, Brazil and Russia.

We are a company which cares about social impact with a double bottom line to provide meaningful employment and training opportunities to underemployed qualified workers in the US and emerging countries.
