When was Etsy founded?

Etsy was founded in 2005 by a group of entrepreneurs who wanted to create a platform for people to sell handmade and vintage items. The company was founded in Brooklyn, New York, and it has grown to become a leading e-commerce platform for unique and handmade items.

Etsy was initially launched as a way for artists and crafters to sell their work directly to consumers, and over time it has expanded to include a wider range of items, including vintage and unique factory-manufactured items. Today, Etsy is a publicly traded company, and it continues to focus on supporting small businesses and independent sellers.
