What a great way to announce an investment round…
Watch the video which is part of this announcement – it’s excellent.
“Etsy is a young company: we’re not yet three years old, the majority of our employees are under 35 years of age, and we have an exuberance that knows no age. We have certainly had our fair share of what I call ‘conducting our education in public,’ and this is something I am proud of.
Throughout the myriad challenges since we launched the website, we have worked day and night to see things through. We’re in this for the long haul. We believe that the world cannot keep consuming the way it does now, and that buying handmade is part of the solution.”
They are wise beyond their years I’d say and have an inspiring vision for their company.
And, oh yeah, they just raised $27m to help them get there.
