The biggest challenge that local class providers face every day is how to fill the empty seats in their classes. Traditional marketing methods like advertising are far too expensive and difficult to optimize, and daily deal sites take a huge part of the revenue generated, and can often damage the reputation of the class provider.
CourseHorse solves this problem by centralizing local class information to make classes easier than ever to discover and enroll in. That means that our schools can spend less time marketing and more time teaching the skills they’re passionate about.

- Helping manage the on-boarding process of the schools that are excited to join
