Mathieu Nebra is the co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer of OpenClassrooms, the leading online education platform in Europe with more than 2 million unique visitors every month.

Mathieu founded the “Site du Zero” website at age 13 with the strong belief that innovation and technology can empower anyone to master digital skills. Originally made for friends to share tips and tutorials about coding and computing, Mathieu was determined to create a more universal learning resource. Over the years, the website gained traction and developed a comprehensive offer of online courses.

In 2002 and while in high school, Mathieu Nebra collaborates with regular “Site du Zero” contributor Pierre Dubuc, to co-develop a new version of the website and allow users to create and share their own tutorials via the platform, after being submitted and reviewed by experts in the field. The courses offered are free to access, and the business model is built on online ad revenue. Mathieu Nebra graduates with a master’s degree in engineering in 2008.

In 2013, the site was renamed OpenClassrooms and its learning paths tailored to the job market needs with the objective of offering access to the most in-demand skills in a variety of fields, including data, business, design, HR, development and soft skills.
Real-world projects, active online community and personal coaching were all a part of the recipe to guarantee the participants thrive in their future career, including front-end developer, software architect, data analyst, product manager, AI engineer and many more.

OpenClassrooms’ core mission is to make education accessible to everyone and everywhere, by delivering vocational training and internationally recognised degrees fully online. With a unique approach based on mastery learning, hands-on projects and individualized mentoring, the platform promotes employability for all, specifically in today’s and tomorrow’s most sought-after digital and skills jobs.

Mathieu is a key innovator in online learning and was selected as MIT Innovators Under 35.
