Expert-led, live courses for employees

Sphere is where vetted leading experts run live, cohort-based courses for professionals around the world. We've upskilled learners from over 700 businesses and have annual contracts with companies like Stripe, Flipkart, Tinder and Accenture. Attendees network with each other, engage one-on-one with our instructors, and access exclusive content. Each three-week course focuses on a functional skill attendees can apply at work. Prices vary, and employer learning and development budgets often cover the cost. Instructors approved by Sphere take 80% of course earnings, sometimes more than doubling their annual salary. Sphere provides distribution, content and community support to instructors through their platform. Our goal is to become the largest decentralized corporate university.

Active Founders

Nicholas Rudder

I'm the Co-Founder and CEO of ScholarSite, living SF but originally hailing from the sunny shores of Sydney, Australia. My background is in both tech operations and tech investment. I've been involved in the edtech landscape for a number of years and was motivated to start ScholarSite when I did my own post grad degree during the pandemic - it felt like something that could be done far better, at a more reasonable price and in a way that fitted in with the busy lives we all have today!
