Interview with the Founder of Envato, Collis Ta'eed


Collis Ta'eed founded a little company called Envato back in 2006, and three years later it has flourished into a corporation with 18 extremely successful subsidiaries that employ writers and designers from all over the world. Its diversity ranges from tutorial blogs covering almost every topic in the design world, to successful marketplaces that provide you with all the design materials you will ever need.

With the entrepreneurial genius of Collis and assistance from his talented staff, they have turned Envato into a giant in the world of design that acquires at least 11 million hits a month across it's network of sites. Now pose those burning questions you have always wanted to ask Collis today!
