About Adobe Business Catalyst

The Business Catalyst story goes back to 1997, when Bardia Housman (CEO) co-founded Start (www.bcode.com), a small business which quickly grew to become the most trafficked website and largest online community (over 1million customers) in Australia (Hitwise). The business quickly set out to expand internationally serving millions of customers in various countries. By 1999, Start, a thriving business was generating millions of dollars in revenue and was subsequently acquired by a large NASDAQ listed company.

By 2001 Bardia had decided it was time for something new. Generally dissatisfied with the state of online businesssolutions and a lack of serious tools for businesses, he officially launched Business Catalyst with business partner Adam Broadway. Today, Business Catalyst is a leading online business application helping a legion of designers build and maintain online businesses for 1000's of small business owners, worldwide. On September 01, 2009, Business Catalyst was acquired by Adobe Systems.
