Great nonfiction books can change lives. But statistics show that 90% of them are never read past the first chapter. Distractions are growing and we’re living ever busier lives. To add to that, different people have different amounts of free time, budget and learning preferences. StoryShots is here to change that. We’re a bootstrapping social impact startup, on a mission to make the key insights of bestselling nonfiction books accessible to everyone (no matter their budget, time or learning style). We believe in empowering a teenager in rural India as much a time-starved entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. Everyone has the right to learn from the world’s greatest books.
Farid Behnia, with experience working at Fortune 100 companies and partnership with Tim Ferriss, founded StoryShots in 2018. He wanted to make it possible for everyone to have the same transformations he had in life thanks to a few self-help books.
