Fiverr's 10th Anniversary: A letter from our CEO

Micha Kaufman
February 26, 2020

It’s hard to believe a decade has passed since this remarkable journey started. It has been a privilege for me to watch Fiverr’s evolution, from a crazy idea into one of the world’s largest marketplaces for digital services.  We are a success because of our relationship with all of you, and this is only the beginning. 

Every day I hear inspiring stories from members of our community who have built their businesses using freelancers on Fiverr and achieved things they wouldn’t have without access to those skills. People have found inspiration and freedom working on the platform and have put aside cultural differences and physical borders to work from over 160 countries around the world. 

In the last ten years, freelancers on our platform have earned over one billion dollars helping over 5.5 million businesses of all sizes grow and achieve their goals. Fiverr grew into a company that has real impact on the lives of millions of sellers and buyers around the world and I couldn’t be prouder. 

Looking into the future, while we continue to change and to grow, some things will always remain the same: our commitment to you, our amazing community. Our commitment to building better tools to help you work together more effectively. Our commitment to our mission of changing how the world works together.  

The future of work looks bright, technology is making the working world smaller, empowering anyone to build something from wherever they are and we are proud to be a part of that. Thank you all for being part of the Fiverr story, I look forward to the incredible things we will do together in the next ten years and beyond.
