Canva named to the Forbes Cloud 100 list

Following a defining year for Canva where we’ve made momentous progress towards our mission of empowering the world to design, we’re incredibly proud to have been named on the Forbes Cloud 100 for 2023.


We’ve been striving to empower the world to design for the past decade – but there’s no doubt the past 12 months have been especially momentous for Canva. We unveiled our Visual Suite(opens in a new tab or window), where we became the first platform to unlock the power of text, visuals and productivity tools combined; launched Canva for Teams(opens in a new tab or window) to empower organizations to visually communicate and collaborate at scale; and grew our global community to more than 135 million. It’s an exciting time for visual communication, and we’re incredibly proud to have been named 4th on the Forbes Cloud 100 for 2023.

Now in its eighth year, the Cloud 100 represents the best and brightest private companies in the tech sector from around the world.

Our game-changing Visual Suite

Since the beginning of Canva, we’ve been on a mission to democratize design and bring accessible, easy-to-use visual communication tools to the world. Last year, we launched our Visual Suite(opens in a new tab or window) to our community, with products such as Docs(opens in a new tab or window), Presentations(opens in a new tab or window), Whiteboards(opens in a new tab or window), Video(opens in a new tab or window), Websites(opens in a new tab or window)and more empowering all visual communication needs on one unified platform.


From real-time collaboration and ideas sharing, to utilizing thousands of customizable templates, or creating and scaling on-brand content with our suite of brand management(opens in a new tab or window) features, our products are empowering teams of all shapes and sizes to thrive in the visual economy(opens in a new tab or window).

Unlocking the power of AI

Just like design a decade ago, the AI ecosystem is highly fragmented. We’re reimagining the design process once again by consolidating the best AI technology into Canva and making it accessible to the world. We were proud to launch our AI image generator Text to Image(opens in a new tab or window) and AI copywriting assistant Magic Write(opens in a new tab or window) last year. These tools are removing friction in the design process and earlier this year we added even more magic to our Visual Suite(opens in a new tab or window), with the likes of Magic Design(opens in a new tab or window), Magic Edit(opens in a new tab or window), Magic Eraser(opens in a new tab or window), and Magic Resize(opens in a new tab or window) unlocking new design superpowers for our global community. There’s plenty more magic to come, so watch this space.

Building a content-rich ecosystem

We’re also driven by a vision to build the world’s richest ecosystem of content and integrations. As we scale, an ecosystem allows us to meet the diverse needs of our community by tapping into talented developers to build even more functionality into Canva. We recently launched the Canva Developer Platform(opens in a new tab or window), including the Canva Apps SDK, opening our design engine to a wider community of developers, enabling instant distribution of their apps and services to millions of people on Canva.

Our growing team

As Canva grows, so does our incredible team. There are now nearly 4,000 Canvanauts across the globe, with more than 700 joining Canva in the last 12 months. We have eight campuses located around the world, including our recently opened London(opens in a new tab or window), Melbourne(opens in a new tab or window), and Austin(opens in a new tab or window) campuses, but our culture isn’t bound by locations. It’s rooted in our values and our mission, so we empower our team to choose how they work best(opens in a new tab or window).
