over $1.2 million is paid out to designers every month as a result of work commissioned by the community of SMBs in the startup’s eMarketplace. Since launching, the startup has grown into a hub of over 125,000 designers (from more than 192 countries), paid a total of $25 million to those designers, and is now uploading a new design to the site every six seconds. And, of course, it’s also launched 99,999 design contests to date.
It’s a great resource for designers to be sure, who can expose their work to upwards of 1,200 new client opportunities at any given time. And 99,999 contests launched ain’t bad for a couple of years of work. No wonder Accel was so eager to invest in this fast-growing Aussie startup.
