LitPick’s mission is to help preteens and teens develop a lifelong love of reading by empowering young readers to share their opinions in a community without socio-economic boundaries.
In essence, LitPick receives the latest young adult titles for free from publishers and authors. In return, young readers contribute their opinions via book reviews, forming a lively and engaged online community with benefits for all stakeholders. LitPick attracts users through a strong value proposition, a “freemium” offering, proven viral growth strategies, and channel partnerships with educational and community organizations.
We hope to promote literacy by changing the way students interact with literature and becoming a leader in the growing intersection of education and technology. LitPick will be a sustainable social enterprise built upon a profitable business model that brings together the major stakeholders in the young adult market – publishers, authors, educators, parents, and young readers – in a way that no organization has before.
