Written by: Peter Dinham | Published in: DealsAustralian start-up 99designs has made its first ever acquisition, buying German design marketplace, 12designer, as the company continues its “aggressive” global growth and expansion. Asia, Latin and South America are likely markets for possible further acquisitions although no firm plans have yet been announced.
99designs, the company popularizing the crowdsourcing design model where designers compete to get paid, is announcing that it has raised $10 million in Series B funding. Founded back in 2008, 99designs was bootstrapped for its first few years before raising a big $35 million round led by Accel Partners.
