CEO & Co-Founder
The idea for PublishDrive was born after Kinga realized there was no easy way to self-publish content internationally. She assembled a team of developers and publishing experts to create the ultimate platform for selling digital books worldwide.
Kinga is a part of Forbes 30 under 30, nomination for Digital Book World Best Tech Entrepreneur of the Year, Mckinsey Next Generation Women program, Google for Startups International Women Founders, and more. Find her on LinkedIn.
PublishDrive in the Media
These are our values
We are Global and diverse
PublishDrive is a global operation that serves content creators and publishers from all over the world – in over 190 countries. Our partners are international too, repping the U.S., U.K., Europe, China, Russia, Southeast Asia, and more.
Honesty and transparency
We maintain a transparency by sharing information openly, deliberately, and candidly. We don’t shy away from sharing hard truths. On the other hand, we receive constructive feedback with open minds.
We are Innovative
PublishDrive stems from thinking outside of the box and disrupting the publishing industry. That required courage and the urge to look for creative solutions. In essence, we are innovative.
We are flexible
Most of us work remotely, not adhering to certain work hours or styles. Everyone is encouraged to do what works for them best. Again, we celebrate results (not the amount of hours clocked in). We also react to industry trends, meaning there are times when we need to recalibrate our plans.
We dream big
Our vision is to make PublishDrive the #1 global self-publishing platform. It’s ambitious, but we thrive on challenges. We push ourselves to the next level, knowing our work makes a difference for our customers and the publishing landscape at large.
Success and value will not come from simply growing bigger as a company, our mission is to add value not only to individuals but to everyone around us by striving to be better. We listen to our customers’ needs and prioritize our developments around them.
