Melbourne tech company Envato has boosted its efforts to improve the gender diversity of its team, creating a program to train women as developers.
Cyan Ta’eed is the cofounder of Envato one of Australia’s most successful tech companies.
Envato has expanded upon its existing sponsorship of Melbourne-based social enterprise Code Like a Girl, becoming a national partner to help the organisation further build upon its aim to get more Australian girls and women into the tech sector.
First launched ten years ago, Envato was one of Australia’s first startup success stories. Bootstrapped by original founders Cyan and Collis Ta’eed, it now has over 1.5 million active buyers and sellers and over six million community members working across its various marketplaces, and the accolades have kept coming one after the other.
A panel of Australia’s most influential players in the startup scene came in together Sydney last Friday to share their experiences with a 700-strong crowd at The Sunrise convention. The day-long event gave audiences the rare opportunity to ask questions and learn directly from the founders of companies such as Atlassian, Freelancer, Envato, Canva, RetailMeNot, LookSmart and Salmat.
In this week’s STARTUP CAST’s we are back stage at The Sunrise conference that was put on by Startmate and Blackbird VC.
