Paperlit, the digital publishing platform for mobile distribution of traditional editorial content with a low impact on publishers’ technological and organizational processes, has participated in the European Microsoft BizSpark and awarded second place in the top 15 best European start-ups. The summit, held in London yesterday and hosted by the Redmond giant, provides a unique platform to debate the issues facing tech European entrepreneurs and presents some of the best start-ups in Europe.
Gionata Mettifogo, founder and CEO of Paperlit, presented the company and its products/services to investors, start-ups, journalists, government representatives, and Network Partners, confirming a strategy and quality choice in working on Azure, the Microsoft Cloud Services Platform.
In addition, Paperlit also provided a demonstration of the “Repubblica +” and “Wired Italy” editorial apps developed by Paperlit and available on the new Windows 8 marketplace months in advance from the official launch of the Windows 8 OS next fall..
“Presenting our company and digital platform among the best start-ups of the year in such a competitive European scenario it's been a great opportunity, as much as being awarded second place in the top15 best European start-ups” Mettifogo said after the meeting. “The presence of Repubblica+ and Wired Italy editorial apps on the Window 8 consumer preview proves that Paperlit is once again on the edge of innovation. We enable traditional publishers to enter the digital content distribution world with a unique technology, allowing readers to access traditional editorial contents with the best ‘touch device’ experience.”
It is both a confirmation and a challenge for the Paperlit’s developers team. Starting today, the publishing platform of Paperlit is available at 360 degrees for publishers who wants to market their own app with no limitation in distribution channel or operating system: iOS, Android, Web, Facebook and now Windows 8.
