#02: Ankur Nagpal, founder of Teachable, on doing things that don’t scale, community building, and achieving 3x growth

By Dave Rogenmoser

In four short years, Teachable has grown to over $1 million of monthly revenue and last year, they helped their creators sell close to $190 million in courses. One of the most unique aspects of Teachable's story is that their CEO, Ankur Nagpal, scaled his business by following the counter-intuitive philosophy of "do things that don't scale." During this interview, you'll find out how Ankur hacked growth at Teachable using UDemy's API (until he got shut down), how he identifies the best business opportunities, and how he's approaching building a growth team from scratch. Find out why these strategies work for Teachable and how you can apply these lessons to your own marketing team. Welcome to the #ScaleOrDie nation.
