Until 2016, only accredited investors were allowed to invest in private companies. This was, in theory, to protect everyday citizens from investing more than they could afford to lose, but it also meant that the majority of Americans were denied the opportunity to invest in startups at all. Under Title III of the JOBS act, also referred to “Regulation Crowdfunding,” or “Reg CF”, the majority of the population can now invest in startups for the very first time.
What first started out as a graphic design web app for creating books, social media posts, and marketing pieces has taken on a new and promising direction….
As self-publishing continues to disrupt the industry, having a one-stop resource that facilitates the entire self-publishing journey would effectively serve an evolving need for convenience, ease, and quality.
While talking with several authors and publishing professionals, we came to realize that there are still a few unfulfilled gaps in the self-publishing arena, that if resolved, could disrupt the industry in an incredible way.
GAP #1: No convenient resource
Many authors write amazing books, but many don’t know where to turn to find suitable, trusted editors, designers, and marketers for their books (emphasis on trusted, as many are not). Freelance sites are riddled with unscreened and risky services.
GAP #2: Limited choices for professionals
Alternately, there are no resources for established, trusted publishing service professionals to stand out, based on their own merits and reputation.
GAP #3: Other online graphic design DIY apps fall short
• They do not offer print cover design
• Many are low-quality, or, too expensive and hard to learn
• Many are proprietary of a publisher and exclusive contract.
• None allow the full creation of a book

Our next phase is to develop a more robust experience in our app and an online ecosystem that encompasses all facets of book publishing. This will also cover:
