ENTRIES TAGGED "Paperight"
Their award-winning platform brings content to the developing world
The opening statement on Paperight’s “about” page says it all:
Paperight turns any business with any printer and an Internet connection into a print-on-demand bookstore.
This isn’t just about distributing content through copy shops though. Paperight helps make content available in the developing world. That’s why Paperight was named “Most Entrepreneurial Startup” from TOC’s Startup Showcase in February. They’re opening an entirely new channel and serving the needs of readers who might otherwise never have access to this content.
Why haven’t copy shops been able to legally print books for years?
We wanted to give our readers a chance to get to know our TOC Startup Showcase Finalists a little bit better before the big showdown in NYC. Since the three winners of the showcase will be presented on Valentine’s Day, and as the showcase itself is not unlike a startup speed dating session, we decided to stick with the matchmaking theme and asked each of our finalists to complete a personality profile. We’ll be sharing them over the next few weeks in the countdown to TOC NYC.
Online voting is now open and ends soon
This year we’re having the publishing community help us determine the 10 finalists who will come to TOC in New York to show off their product/service. Starting today, an online voting site will be open to the public. Voters will have until Friday, January 11th to cast their vote and help us choose the 10 finalists who will be invited to NYC.
