Pulling in the Funding

Canva is no stranger to raising money. To date, the ambitious startup has brought in more than $300 million from investors. Its latest round includes participation from investors like Bond, General Catalyst, Sequoia Capital, Felicis Ventures, and Blackbird Ventures.

Design for the Rest of Us

While the coronavirus pandemic has forced Canva to shift its operations to a work-from-home format, it hasn’t harmed the design startup. In fact, it has seen a 50 percent uptick in shared designs and a 25 percent increase in designs being created. That is likely because more people are dabbling with design while social distancing at home.
