More and more people are seeing collaboration as an essential part of their day-to-day. We’re not just serving up the verbiage here — we recently commissioned a survey and found that 69% of entrepreneurs regularly rely on their networks rather than going it alone.

Naturally, that got us thinking — if so many of you are collaborating on a regular basis, why don’t we make it easier? Knock down a few barriers to quickly co-creating great content. To that end, we’re launching some exciting real-time collaboration features that will help your team work on designs together, right in PicMonkey. 

So we wanna hear how your crew rallies around to get things done and hustles to grow your business. Because even if you’re a solopreneur, it still takes a village, and we’d love to see how you’re making it happen.

Share your story for a possible $1,000

Four times between June 1st and June 30th 2019, we’re going to award $1,000 for the video submission that we think tells the most inspiring story about collaborating, leveraging a network, growing a business, or working together to make exciting things happen.

So tap into your inner filmmaker and show us your story in a video of 60 seconds or less. It doesn’t need to be a pro production — shoot it on your phone, borrow some gear, dust off your Betacam, whutevs, and send us your video.
