Announcing the First-Ever Book Publishing Hackathon
WIN $10,000.00 & Pitch the CEO of William Morris - Ari Emmanuel
Book discovery needs innovation. It’s never been easier to get a book into a reader’s hands—just one click. But, with over 10,000 books published each year on every topic imaginable, how do people find out about them? There are fewer bookstores to help readers discover exciting new authors and ideas. There’s currently no digital experience that replicates the serendipity of browsing bookshelves. Recommendation engines are fairly primitive – they know what you bought, but they don’t know why. It’s a disruptive opportunity that hasn’t been explored.
Join us for 36 hours of innovation, with some awesome food curated by Fiesta
