Once upon a time, there were four friends who found they had less time than ever to read. They decided there had to be a better way to learn every day. And just like that, Blinkist was born!
Five years later we’ve blinked more than 2,000 of the world’s best nonfiction titles and packed them into 15 minutes, key insight summaries available for reading or listening.
Our mission is to inspire people to keep learning by offering content that fits into people’s mobile lifestyles and daily routines.
We believe in distributed authority, transparency, self-management and personal development. We got rid of management hierarchy and are operating under our own version of Holacracy, the Blinkist Operating System a.k.a. the BOS.
