At Nextory, we believe the world is driven forward when people dare to think differently and challenge the status quo. It’s when we’re not on the same page that new thoughts and ideas are created. We’re certain that individuals and societies would feel much better if we all read more – it leads to increased well-being, personal development, and a strengthened democracy. That’s why Nextory’s vision is to increase reading to enrich people’s lives with beautiful stories.
We run a fast-growing platform that enables the unlimited distribution of stories and knowledge in various digital formats such as audiobooks and e-books. Nextory has endless stories, insights, and inspiration to discover so that we all can continue to see different things and bring ourselves and the world forward.

Once upon a time…
…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.
