Dabble is an online peer-to-peer marketplace for fun & affordable in-person classes. Think of Dabble as the Airbnb for learning or Etsy for teachers. Dabble creates hands-on learning experiences for over 40,000 users & a platform to monetize skills for 2,600 teachers in Chicago, Denver & St. Louis.
Dabble allows teachers & small businesses to interact with customers that self-select to take their classes. Different than Groupon or Belly where money comes out of cash flow, Dabble functions as a small business incubator prequalifying customers with hyper-local engagement. Dabble notched $355K in 2014 revenue and tracking $1.2M in 2015.
Learning with Dabble is easy and affordable with the average class priced at $35. Users log in, browse classes, register and then show up. Dabble provides a platform through classes to create community in a way that doesn’t currently exist. The key ingredient is the in-person connection, which leads to stronger community ties and engaged customers.
