Paperight Wins the Inaugural CONTEC International Publishing Start-Up Showcase

Alert! Arthur Attwell’s print-on-demand start-up company, Paperight, has won the CONTEC International Publishing Start-Up Showcase, held in Frankfurt yesterday. The one day conference, held on the day before the Frankfurt Book Fair, aimed to integrate “the interests of the entire international publishing industry – trade and educational publishers, agents, techies, authors, librarians, and more”.

Paperight tweeted the good news when they were named as a finalist and then when they won the showcase yesterday:

Sophie Rochester wrote about the start-up showcase presentations, which kicked off with Paperight COO Tarryn-Anne Anderson’s winning pitch. Paperight were up against Mangoreader, Audio Guide Me, Music Logistics and PubCoder.

First up was Tarryn-Anne Anderson from Paperight. Paperight turns any business with any printer and an Internet connection into a print-on-demand bookstore. By registering with Paperight for free, copy shops anywhere in the world have access to an online library from which they can legally print out books, magazines and other documents for their customers.

Watch this video for an explanation of what Paperight does, narrated by Sindiwe Magona, and if you like what you see you can vote for them in Business Day‘s Accenture Innovation Index Award.
