Would you like to make a great return on your investment? We are adding features quickly, growing the team, and growing our user base. Our creative.ly site is still young, but it's growing up fast and is on the verge of skyrocketing.

The site we are building will evolve to dramatically improve how people search for creative content and will radically empower creators. We are building a platform that will become a thriving marketplace. The world of creative digital content is undergoing monumental changes. We will be at the forefront of those changes, providing the best technical, financial, and social solutions.

We have new social approaches and disruptive technology which will result in an improved experience for both consumers and creators. Our path to providing significant value and revenue is clear.

We will be using several strategies to help ensure viral growth. We will not settle for linear growth.

We had a successful first round of funding, which was closed out with an investment from David Axmark, MySQL founder. We are now starting the second round of funding.

Our initial funding primarily came from the very people who wrote the Open Source technology that we're using. Our list of funders include the primary developer of mod_perl2 and the founders of MySQL AB. MySQL AB sold to Sun Microsystems for 1 billion. There are also other Angels who we are not listing publicly. We are represented by Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP law firm.

The project is designed to be quite profitable while empowering artists and creators. If you might be interested in investing, please contact us.
