It’s Our 11th Birthday! A Look at Envato by the Numbers ?

Some fast facts & figures highlighting the growth of Envato.

This August, we’re celebrating our 11-year birthday!

To celebrate, here’s a quick look at Envato by the numbers:

1 garage

One garage-turned-workspace in Australia, where Envato was founded in 2006. It’s one of those classic start-up stories.


7 marketplaces exist within Envato Market

Envato Market began with a Flash-based marketplace called ActiveDen, and grew to an ecosystem of seven creative marketplaces.


1,000+ courses available on Envato Tuts+

Course number 1,000 was Adobe XD Livestream: Prototyping an App.


More than 35,000 people earn money through selling items on Envato Market

This includes web designers, developers, artists, video-makers, photographers, and freelancers, and other creatives.


96 of our creators are ‘Power Elite Authors

That means that they’ve made over $1M in sales through Envato.


We’ve sold over 40 million items on our marketplaces

This includes everything from WordPress themes and code to video, photos, and 3D graphics.


We have over 8 million community members around the world

This includes customers in almost every country; 1 in every 1,000 people in the world is an Envato community member!


304,988+ photos on our new photo library

We recently added stock photos to our design subscription service, Envato Elements.


In total, our community has made over $500M in lifetime community earnings

This means that we’ve paid out over $500M in community earnings directly to the Envato community.


To celebrate our 11th birthday, we’re having a (not so) little sale this week, with 50% off more than 300 creative assets across our marketplaces.
