TechMinsk Meetup with Trip Adler
16.02.2018 18:00 - 16.02.2018 21:00
Минск Imaguru Бизнес-клуб/ Startup hub
Meetup for startup founders, IT professionals, and entrepreneurs.
Let us introduce Trip Adler, Co-founder Scribd.
An avid surfer and sometime street-busking saxophonist with a Harvard degree in biophysics, Adler is a man of many interests. He thinks readers ought to be able to indulge their own diverse curiosities as well – and be able to “think about what to read, not what to buy”, as he says.
Scribd, the digital content-sharing platform he cofounded in 2007, is betting big on subscriptions: 8.99$ a month for unlimited e-book downloads. It has already partnered with more than 100 publishers for a catalog of more than 100,000 titles and has ambitions that extend well beyond books.
We want to be the world`s digital library,” he says.
Profitable, with revenues in the “tens of millions” and a user base of 80 million, Scribd no longer has to rely on VC funding.
“Our challenge now is how to take our profits and reinvest them to continue to grow our revenue,” he says.
You are welcome to pitch your startup or idea on the stage and get quick feedback from the community (5 selected startups).
Meetup is organized with USAID Belarus Support
The event is free.
Confirmation of registration has to be shown to organizers.
