[PRESS-RELEASE] Word Audio Publishing chooses StreetLib as its global distribution partner
Milan, Italy, March 31th 2020
StreetLib is delighted to announce a new partnership with Sweden’s Word Audio Publishing (WAPI) as the two companies expand their global digital ambitions.
Based in Italy, StreetLib operates across six continents partnering with publishers and authors to provide services and distribution across the publishing spectrum, including ebooks, audiobooks, print-on-demand, online literature, comics, etc.
WAPI is one of the fastest growing digital books operators in Sweden and beyond — synergies which made for a natural partnership between the two companies.
Mattias Lundgren, CEO at WAPI said:
“Our mission is to reach as many people as possible with our stories. Teaming up with StreetLib makes us realize that mission in a very smooth and easy way. Basically they provide what every publisher needs.”
Giacomo D’Angelo, CEO at StreetLib, said:
“WAPI is leading the way in the new audio economy and we’re delighted to start working with them. At StreetLib, we’re building the best possible tech-publishing platform across all formats and we’re excited to support the next phase of WAPI global expansion and development.”
