Issuu

Issuu is digital publishing and discovery platform that connects people to content for which they have great passion, created by publishers large and small, that share that passion. A digital publishing service that reimagines the print experience, Issuu hosts over 15 million publications and serves over 5.5 billion pageviews to over 70 million active readers each month. The site features leading and emerging titles in fashion, culture, arts, hobbies, catalogs and hyperlocal content, all of which are accessible on any device.

Issuu was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2006 by Michael Hansen, Ruben Bjerg Hansen, Mikkel Jensen, and Martin Ferro-Thomsen, a self-avowed group of “mad geeks with a love of the publishing industry.”

Originally bent on democratizing print media, the company has succeeded in giving aspiring and established publishers the chance to create their own digital magazines without sacrificing the aesthetic and tactile experience of print. With that goal firmly in mind, Issuu launched in December 2007.

In 2008, the site was a SXSW finalist. In 2009, TIME named Issuu one of the 50 Best Websites, and the company was also listed as a Webby Awards honoree. In early 2013, the now transatlantic company opened an office in Palo Alto, California and appointed a new CEO, Joe Hyrkin, formerly of Reverb, Trinity Ventures, and Yahoo, to lead the company globally.
