Graphic design and collaboration platform Canva said that it is now valued at $40 billion after the company raised $200 million in a funding round led by investment management firm T Rowe Price.
The Aussie company, which allows users to make posters, social media graphics, presentations and more by providing pre-sets and templates was valued at $15 billion in a funding round in April.
The money raised will be used to expand Canva’s team of more than 2,000 employees, which the company expects to double in the year ahead, it said.
T Rowe Price, which has $1.68 trillion in assets under management, was joined by Franklin Templeton, Sequoia Capital Global Equities and Bessemer Venture Partners among others in the latest funding round.
