How Behance Got Started
November 13 2015 · Steve Benjamins
Behance is a major platform for creatives to share their work— today it has over five million members. Founder Scott Belsky was working in leadership development at a global investment banking firm before he started Behance. The idea came to him while listening to the issues his creative friends were experiencing.
As with most businesses, this didn’t get to where it is overnight. It took a lot of hard work with talented people to help it through a growth struggle. The same tenacity of Scott and his team was pivotal in keeping it alive throughout the four year period when nobody really knew or cared what Behance was.
