Envato Turns 10!

By Cyan Ta'eed

On this day ten years ago, a small, community-driven company called Envato was quietly launched. Our goal was simple: to build a space for creators to come together around a shared passion for creativity, learning, and design.

It’s been a long, exciting journey. A decade is a long time on the web, and the growth and success of Envato can be entirely credited to our vibrant, creative and ever-growing community. With over seven million members to date, our community has been our driving motivator throughout the last ten years. We’re constantly inspired by the stories of our community members, and grateful for the relationships we’ve built throughout the years.

Here’s a birthday message from Collis and I, from our Envato HQ in Melbourne and featuring the Envato community from around the world.

As you will know, we love to celebrate our birthday, but this year is going to be extra special. It’s going to be memorable. It’s going to be big, real big. It’s our 10th birthday, after all!

Looking Ahead: The Future Of Envato

We’re always thinking about how to make Envato a better, smarter, more innovative organization. Currently, we’re excited about a few new products and platforms that we’re working on, such as ElementsSites, and the new Envato.com blog (the one you’re reading right now!).

Our success metrics are based on community earnings. The knowledge that so many authors make a living doing what they love is all we need to measure the success of Envato. Having recently passed the $400M community earnings mark, we’re aiming for that coveted goal of $1B. Mark that date on your calendars – it will be a date to celebrate!
