RiffRaff was a company built on a strong mission. We believed, and still believe, that there are people all around us with interesting talents, skills, and passions. People who've spent years training at music or art, who speak multiple languages, people who have gotten into homebrewing, sailing or golf. That person may be you, or may be someone you want to learn from. We tried to make it easy to find and connect with that person for on-demand lessons at the tap of a button. And we tried to make it just as easy for that person to earn money sharing their skills with others in their community, despite busy schedules.
Over the past few years, it's been an honor to work with a fantastic team to drive this mission. It's been amazing to see a vision turn into a product, and for people to get excited about using RiffRaff to start taking lessons. And finally, it's been humbling to see the joy people get in sharing their talents, whether to start a career or just to have other people experience value from the thing they love.
So it's with a sad heart that we are announcing that, for financial reasons, RiffRaff is shutting down. We're sorry to those that have come to love our platform. RiffRaff was truly a dream come true. As we say goodbye, know that the more inspiring and colorful our lives are, the happier we all will be.
