A lot has changed since we first started Libboo back in 2007; for a start we’ve gone from Chris and I working in our spare time to a team of 8 people. We’ve been through the MassChallenge and Techstars accelerator programs, both of which have significantly improved us as a team, the focus of the company, and the reach of our network. Then there is the more than $1M that we have raised to keep us working, developing, and refining what we have.
So now we’ve released our pilot, the result of a pivot, where we fundamentally changed what we were doing, and how we were doing it. We realized that although some people had trouble writing books, it wasn’t the main issue they were facing. The main issue is they had trouble getting discovered, and that’s a problem that nobody has been able to solve yet.
