ScaleUp: Redbubble

In this series; Redbubble was founded in Fitzroy, Victoria in 2006 when Peter, Martin and Paul sat around to talk about an idea. It's since become a global three-sided creative marketplace for artists to upload their work and it reproduced on-demand for customers. In 2018 Redbubble, still based in Melbourne, has been through it all; leadership changes, the Global Financial Crisis, a down-round, legal controversy, an Initial Public Offering and more.
