Storis. The name was picked up to sound almost like the product the app is offering: stories. In fact, Storis is the first app developed in Romania for audiobooks and e-books.
It’s hard to believe that Romanians, who are so passionate about stories, who are famous for the entrepreneurial initiative in IT, hadn’t yet developed such an app. Still, it is true. Storis was born from the passion of the visionaries behind it, but it came on the local market as a necessity more than anything else.
On a market that has been estimated at 80-100M EUR annually in 2020, digital book sales are virtually 0%.
Storis’ mission is to raise the digital book market in Romania to match the level of other European markets — by locally developing one of the simplest and most pleasant digital experiences for reading and learning.Storis presentation on Seedblink
