1. Made for founders, by founders
Blinkist was developed with people exactly like you in mind: ambitious, knowledge-hungry aspiring entrepreneurs. Blinkist was born when founders Niklas and Holger realized that there was so much knowledge in the world that, even though they were both voracious readers, they would simply never have the time to access. Wouldn’t it be great if you could speed-read like Superman? They knew they couldn’t speed themselves up, but they could speed up the reading process. They hired a crack team of writers, editors, and topic specialists to distill the world’s bestselling, most life-changing nonfiction books down to their key insights. Today, Blinkist has over 3,000 of the world’s bestselling titles in its library, all of which you can read in 15 minutes or fewer!
2. Books are the best business school
Every founder knows that you don’t need to have studied business to build a great one. Most tech founders end up dropping out of university or never attending at all. Once you know exactly what you want to do, motivated people will always find their way to the top. The best mentors you could ever have are authors of bestselling business books who have been through exactly what you’re experiencing. Wherever you are on your entrepreneurial journey, there’s a book that can help you. On Blinkist, you can quickly access all these invaluable insights, in a way that fits into your choc-a-block schedule. You don’t have to wait to begin building your startup. Every great founder learns on their feet!
