By Lauren Fruncillo October 9, 2021 - 11:30 am

Online marketplace for freelance services Fiverr have announced their acquisition of CreativeLive, a creative and entrepreneurial education platform where people can learn about design, business, photography, video, marketing and more.

“Fiverr is more than just a work platform – we fundamentally believe in supporting the entire freelance lifestyle, and that includes professional education and training. The ability to acquire new skills in a rapidly changing work environment and then be able to monetize them is part of Fiverr’s role in leading transformation for buyers and sellers on our platform,”

“The acquisition of CreativeLive is part of this broader strategy. Chase and the team’s expertise in creating compelling learning experiences across industries is a natural fit for us as we scale this part of our business. The depth and caliber of the courses that CreativeLive offers are exceptional and we look forward to offering them to our entire community.”
– Micha Kaufman, Founder and CEO, Fiverr

Founded in 2010 by Chase Jarvis, CreativeLive sits at the intersection of the future of creativity, the future of learning, and the future of work. The platform offers 2,000+ classes across a variety of creative and business categories and has helped more than 10 million learners acquire new skills for their career, their hobbies, and their lives.

CreativeLive will remain a standalone organization, retain and grow its team from its current headquarters in Seattle, WA, with Founder and CEO Chase Jarvis remaining at the helm. Fiverr’s current online learning platform, Fiverr Learn, will be folded into CreativeLive to further meet the needs of freelancers and businesses across the world.
