Ukrainian online platform Preply is among the world’s top marketplaces


Preply, a Ukrainian online platform that connects over 40,000 tutors to students worldwide, has been ranked 73rd on the Marketplace 100 list by venture capital fund Andreessen Horowitz. This ranking is based on the annual gross merchandise volume (GMV) of the companies included on the list, which is calculated by comparing sales data from January to December 2022 to that of the previous year.

Impressive Success for Preply

Preply’s inclusion on this prestigious list for the second year in a row highlights its impressive success as an e-learning marketplace. The platform offers tutoring services in 50 languages and has students from 180 countries.

“We are glad that Preply has been included in the list of the 100 best marketplaces in the world for the second year in a row by Andreessen Horowitz in their annual ranking.

Given that a significant part of the team was in Ukraine when the war broke out a year ago, it is impossible to overestimate how proud I am of this collective achievement,” wrote in LinkedIn the company’s co-founder, Kirill Bigai.

Founded in 2013 by Sergey Lukyanov, Dmitry Voloshin, and Kirill Bigai, Preply has become a go-to platform for those looking to learn a new language or improve their language skills.
