Skillshare, the crowdfunded teaching start-up co-founded by Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, has helped to organize around 500 classes so far in New York with 2,500 students actively taking part and many more users who have browsed the site.

The NYC start-up raised $550,000 in a seed round of funding, from Founder Collective, SV Angel, Collaborative Fund, TechStars’ David Tisch, Seamless’ Jason Finger, and Meetup’s Scott Heiferman.

Sources are now saying it has finished up its Series A funding with some more investors getting involved late in the game. Business Insider says that it has ‘some excellent investors at a healthy valuation’ and Gigaom has been informed that Spark Capital and Union Square Ventures are two of the companies selected. Skillshare was one of the 25 NYC start-ups with potential and looks like it has a bright future.
