Self-publishing start-up Notion Press on Monday announced that it has raised $1 million in pre-series A funding from HNIs.
Commenting on the funding, Naveen Valsakumar, co-founder and CEO, Notion Press said, “We are growing aggressively and looking to go international this year. We will be intensifying our coverage across India and fuel our operations internationally as well with the raised funds. We are launching our US operations in the middle of September and would be launching in three other countries by end of this financial year. With support from our investor group, we will be able to execute our vision more rapidly and broadly.” Valsakumar also wants to venture into the regional language space, leveraging the technology.
A spokesperson from the investor group said, “We commend the cutting-edge publishing solutions provided by Notion Press and the entrepreneurial spirits of the co-founders who put their heads down and built a sustainable and profitable business in just 4 years. Notion Press has shown tremendous potential in its growth, and is well-placed to be a part of the publishing revolution in India in the coming years.”
The company, founded in 2012 by Naveen Valsakumar, Bhargava Adepalley, and Jana Pillay, has published over 2000+ authors in over 100 countries. It offers various publishing, book printing, distribution and marketing services to both authors and publishers from around the world.
