New York Startup: PubSlush Crowdfunding Book Publishing For Good…
Pubslush is a global publishing platform. Authors raise funds and gauge theaudience for new book ideas, and trendsetting readers pledge their support to bring books to life. Our publishing arm, powered by readers, acquires books from this platform, and for every book we sell, we donate a book to a child in need. Pubslush combines the crowd sourcing power of American Idol and the philanthropy of TOMS Shoes. We are creating a company that is all about giving; giving an opportunity to authors, giving a voice to readers, and giving books to children without access to literature.
Who are the founders and what are their backgrounds?
Jesse Potash, our founder, is a social entrepreneur with experience in finance and intellectual human rights development. Prior to Pubslush, he founded and directed College Corps NY, an organization connecting college students with NGOs focused on international development and human rights. He has a BBA in Finance from Baruch College in New York City, and is an alumnus of Harvard Business School’s Summer Venture in Management Program. His professional experience is primarily in finance, but also encompasses advertising, publishing, and fashion.
