We read. We write. We code, design, and plan. But we’re all here for one reason: to inspire you to keep learning.
Our story, in a blink
Once upon a time there were four friends. They exchanged notes and book summaries throughout their school years (and aced their exams because of it). Flash forward to 2012 and they’d all gotten jobs and lives and had less time than ever to read. They decided there had to be a better way to learn every day and still keep up with their jobs. And just like that, Blinkist was born! Four years later, we’ve hit a million users and blinked more than 1,500 titles of the world’s best nonfiction, distilling them into key insight summaries you can read in 15 minutes.
1 We love to eat.
We’re the kids everybody wanted to swap lunch with in the cafeteria. From the weekly CSA box to team lunch, to monthly home-cooked meals, we take eating well seriously.
3 Foosball. It's serious.
Maybe it’s a startup cliché these days, but we’re okay with that. We love foosball around here and we’ve had the Blinkist World Cup tourneys to prove it. Serious contenders only.
