DesignCrowd provides a crowd-sourced graphic design marketplace, connecting graphic, logo and website designers with small and large businesses.
After bootstrapping the business for some time CEO and Founder, Alec Lynch, turned to venture capital as a way to fund the growing business. To date, DesignCrowd has raised over 12 million dollars in venture capital, with three rounds driven by Starfish Ventures.
DesignCrowd has grown from a team of three, when Starfish Ventures initially invested, to now have 50 staff across offices in Sydney, Manila and San Francisco, over half a million registered designers and generate almost $20 million in revenue each year.
