Treehouse is moving to Portland with $4.75 million in their pockets… um branches


Treehouse is moving to Portland with $4.75 million in their pockets… um branches

I had heard that Ryan Carson was well on his way to making Portland, Oregon, his new home. But I guess this confirms it.

TechCrunch is reporting that Ryan’s Treehouse has landed more funding. And they’re now listing their headquarters as Portland.

In the same hot edustartup space as Lynda, Codecademy and Udacity, the platform uses example videos, online quizzes and badges to teach people how to develop websites, web apps, iPhone apps and launch startups. Treehouse films its video lessons at its expanded film studio in Orlando, Florida and its primary offices are based in Portland, Oregon.

And Treehouse already has roots here. (I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist.) Alex Payne, cofounder of Simple, advises Treehouse. Simple relocated to Portland last year.

For more on the company, visit Treehouse or follow @treehouse on Twitter.
