…two entrepreneurs thought to themselves, “What if we could make all the books in the world available to everyone?” That was the starting point of Nextory, and the app was released in Sweden in 2015.
The two entrepreneurs, Shadi Bitar and Ninos Malki, came to Sweden from Syria when they were 11 years old. They brought their passion for the written word, which quickly helped them acquire knowledge and learn their new language. Also, having seen a dictatorship limit access to literature, they both dreamt of making books more available to ensure democracy and freedom of speech.
The two founders of Nextory are still working within the company, Shadi as CEO and Ninos as CTO, and their vision to increase reading is as relevant as ever.
