BriBooks, an AI-powered writing and publishing platform for children, recently announced that it has exited stealth mode and has raised USD 1.5 million (approximately Rs 11.95 crore) in pre-seed funding. Amidst the unprecedented disruption in education, caused by Covid-19, BriBooks takes on one of the world’s major education problems – children stopped reading and writing for pleasure, and the older they are, the less they read. In the US, less than 5% of K-12 students enjoy reading while according to research, writing and reading are more likely to determine a child’s future than their social or economic background.

“As every educator knows, writing for pleasure, and starting at an early age is the most effective way to excel academically and enjoy superior mental health,” says Ami Dror, founder, and chief executive officer of BriBooks. “By providing kids with a digital writing experience, BriBooks makes writing fun and engaging. Using a wide selection of professional book themes and pre-designed pages, the young authors get to visualize their book as they write it. We provide the young authors with a combination of visual triggers, open-ended questions, gaming hooks, and storytelling tools, allowing them to easily write, publish and sell their books on BriBooks, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.”

The global children’s books market size is expected to grow from USD 16.9 billion (approximately Rs 13,472 crore) in 2020 to USD 21.9 billion (approximately Rs 17,458 crore) in 2025 at a CAGR of 7.8% and BriBooks disrupts this category by offering fast and low-cost authoring, editing, printing and distribution solutions within one platform.

“Our customers are parents, children, and educators,” added Paurush Pandit and Abhishek Kumar, BriBooks co-founders. “When it comes to creativity or imagination, kids have a clear advantage over adults. They love inventing and telling stories and BriBooks empowers them to share their books, participate in the world’s best writing contests, and even get global recognition for their books. Children, parents, and educators can now write books for free on www.bribooks.com.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
