Welcoming Lila Ibrahim to Coursera

It’s been an exciting journey since our launch last April. In this short time, we’ve partnered closely with 86 universities and institutions to deliver hundreds of classes to 4.4 million learners (and counting). We’ve also launched new programs to support student learning, including Coursera’s successful Signature Track, the Teacher Professional Development Track, and the Global Translation Partners Program. Thanks to great faculty and universities around the world, we’ve become the leader in creating solutions for education access and affordability.

To accelerate our next phase of growth, we are delighted to add Lila Ibrahim to our team as Coursera’s first President. She will join our co-founders and co-CEOs to form the Executive Office. During this period of time, she will remain an operating partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB).

Lila has worked closely with the company founders over the past year. She has been consistently passionate about education and brings the experience to help us turbo charge Coursera’s growth.
