TGI 39: How to Build a Marketplace with Ross Kimbarovsky, CEO of Crowdspring
Today we’re joined by Ross Kimbarovsky. Ross founded and is the CEO at crowdspring, where more than 220,000 experienced freelancers help agencies, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and non-profits with high-quality custom logo design, web design, graphic design, product design, and company naming services.
There’s a rumor that Ross left his law practice to found crowdspring so that he could wear shorts to work. The rumor is true.
Crowdspring has worked with the world’s best brands, including Amazon, LG, Starbucks, Microsoft, Barilla, Philips (and many more), and also with many of the world’s best agencies – and tens of thousands of entrepreneurs and startups from 100 different countries.
Before founding crowdspring, Ross practiced law for 13 years as a successful trial attorney. He counseled and represented clients (from small internet startups to Fortune 100 companies) in complex disputes involving intellectual property in state and federal courts and before the World Intellectual Property Organization.
Ross has founded numerous other startups, including Startup Foundry, Quickly Legal, and Respect.
