How to run a successful startup : Udemy story as case study. (Udemy almost died at least 5x. We got rejected by everyone in the Valley)

Story by Udemy co-founder.

I’m biased but @udemy is a true underdog story + thought I’d share details we’ve never shared before.

ICYMI, we announced a $50M raise at $2B valuation.

Udemy almost died at least 5x. We got rejected by everyone in the Valley. Startups are never a straight line.

I almost didn’t meet them; @adeoressi threatened to kick me out if I didn’t. We bonded over our immigrant backgrounds. I worked for free for 6 months. It became obvious that @erenbali was one of the smartest people I’d ever met, though few others saw it. We became cofounders.

It was an extremely tough start. None of us had family money.

They were on visas so could not quit. Worked day jobs from 10a-7p; then on udemy until 4am.

I was a consultant and flew cross-country every week. 70 hours in DC, slept on plane, then 40-hour weekends in SF.
