NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- One Month (https://onemonth.com/) announced today that it will be expanding its accelerated learning curriculum after closing a $770,000 seed round.

One Month's goal is simple -- empower people to change their lives by learning real-world skills, in a short amount of time. The One Month team is comprised of education thought-leaders and self-taught technology experts working to build the most effective way to learn online.
