Codementor Raises $1.2M in Funding

codementorCodementor, a Mountain View, CA-based marketplace for code instructors, raised $1.2m in funding.

Backers included Techstars Ventures, 500 Startups, and Foundry Group syndicate FG Angel.

The company will use the funds to expand operations.

Founded by Weiting Liu, Codementor operates an online marketplace that connects developers with experts for on-demand 1:1 support through screen sharing, video and text chat.
The company, a Y Combinator alum which had previously raised $600k, is launching Codementor Live Classes, where students can learn to code with live mentors instead of video tutorials. It will offer Live Classes in various tech stacks including front-end (JavaScript, AngularJS), back-end development (Ruby on Rails, Python, PHP) and mobile development (both iOS & Android) as well as courses for beginners (e.g. Learn Ruby on Rails in 2 Weeks) and advanced engineers (e.g. ES6 Crash Course).
