Who we are
Audiolibrix is one of the largest digital audiobook and spoken word content sellers in Central Europe.
It started its operation in Slovakia and Czechia in 2012. Its own cloud audiobook platform offers subscription based and individually priced purchases (a la carte) to the users.
Customers can consume purchased content via free mobile applications available for iOS and Android platforms, or with any mp3 players.
Audiolibrix started with large amounts of coffee drunk and long nights spent staring at computer screens. And with two friends who liked to read...
Twas the year 2009 and the idea was born in Ivan's head in England. He would listen to English audiobooks on his long commute to work. Then, he thought what if I tried listening to Slovak or Czech ones? But there was nothing of the sort out there. Only CDs and getting them to the UK would take at least a month. What if...
Let's skip ahead a year, past the preparations and negotiations. This new scene takes place in a fast-food restaurant (of all places!) in Bratislava.
Under the cover of just catching up, Ivan's invited Michal to hang out and prepared his arguments along with a business plan. He needed Michal to code an e-shop. That would be his input. And he'd get audiobooks for free. What an awesome deal!
Spoiler alert, Ivan succeeded and got him on board. But as it always goes with these things, the work was a bit more complicated than expected. Michal hasn't stopped coding the e-shop to this day.
In 2012, an e-shop was born. Success!
