Canva is super cool Australian design software startup recently valued at over $1bn. It’s only the second Aussie tech unicorn after Atlassian.
I’m a fan of their product and recently visited for a tour. It was such a delight to meet the team in my hometown of Sydney. Here are some notes from the experience:
Following my recent visits to Airbnb, Facebook & Google in the Silicon Valley, it was great to compare the Canva experience and identify common threads for these innovative companies. At the heart of each one is a team culture powered by diversity, creativity, collaborative thinking and bound by a strong shared vision.
Thanks again to Shipra M for a wonderful tour and my buddy Syed A for arranging everything!
I love the article that co-founder Melanie Perkins posted. It’s jam-packed with gems, insights and inspiration from her entrepreneurial journey.
