Envato Market in Top 100 Online Marketplaces
Envato was the only Australian-founded business in the top 100 of the annual rankings list.
Envato Market has been recognized as one of the world’s best independent online marketplaces for the fourth straight year.
Now in its fourth year, the annual a16z Marketplace 100 ranks the 100 largest consumer-facing marketplace startups and private companies.
Envato Market has been ranked in the top 100 of the Marketplace 100 every year since its inception.
San Francisco-founded grocery service Instacart was again number one. Valve – the owner of game marketplace Steam – came in at number two, and ticketing platform Viagogo was third.
Envato Market is Australia’s only representative on the list of companies. It is also one of only two from APAC, and one of only ten ranked marketplaces that are based outside of the USA.
Since day one, we’ve believed in creating genuine opportunities for creatives, making creative success achievable and accessible for all. Envato Market has been a big part of that purpose, and the community that supports it should be thrilled with this acknowledgment of their inspiration and commitment.
Hichame Assi Envato CEO
“We’re very proud of the longevity of Envato Market, which is approaching 17 years since it first started empowering creators around the world with a new way to level up their creative projects”, remarked CEO Hichame Assi.
There were 34 new entries into the rankings in 2023. Experience marketplaces in food, travel and shopping all showed breakout growth.
