History

Craftsy parent company Sympoz Inc was founded in April 2010 by former eBay executives John Levisay and Josh Scott, Yahoo! exec Andrew Rogers, plus Todd Tobin and Bret Hanna.[3][4] It raised $15 million in an angel round of funding from Access Venture Partners, Foundry Group, Harrison Metal and Tiger Global Management, launching the website just over a year later.[5] By September 2012, the company estimated that an average of 1,600 people a day were signing up for Craftsy courses.[6]

In November 2014, Craftsy raised $50 million in its fourth round of financing, bringing the company's total funding to almost $100 million.[7] NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Group agreed to purchase a majority stake in the company from equity firms in May 2017.[8] Catherine Balsam-Schwaber was hired as the general manager Craftsy from her position as chief creative officer at Mattel Creation.[9] In July 2018, NBCU started to rebranded Craftsy as Bluprint as the service expands its class offerings.[10]
