Design from down under: one-on-one with the CEO of Canva


Forget “best eyes” and “class clown.” What about “most likely to succeed?'”

When Melanie Perkins decided she wanted to keep yearbooks alive in the digital era, she didn’t just write it on the back page and forget about it. She started her own company.

But how did Canva go from a small start-up in Australia to challenging the likes of Adobe, and reeling in significant cash from Silicon Valley legend Mary Meeker along the way?

Fortt Knox is a weekly podcast from CNBC anchor Jon Fortt. Previous episodes of the program can be found here.
