Pierre Dubuc co-founded OpenClassrooms in 2013, but his project began in 1999. He was 11 years old at the time when he met his co-founder Mathieu Nebra, and created with him the Site du Zéro, the first online coding course, which later became one of the first self-help forums for creating websites.
With success on their side, the two friends created OpenClassrooms after their graduation, a fully online school whose mission was clear from the start: to make education accessible to everyone. Its core objective was: to have an impact by using all the possibilities of online education to best prepare students for their future profession.
Today, the company trains 3 million people in 140 countries every month. France accounts for only 60% of its business, with the platform also being very active in the United States, the United Kingdom and Africa.
