Perlego - The EdTech startup which is on a mission to make textbooks more affordable via its innovative subscription service

perlegoAs we all know, studying can be an expensive business. And therefore anything which can potentially help students save some money ought to be welcomed with open arms - especially when it’s not only helping them save money but also helping them study at the same time.

Confused? Read on…

Our latest startup of the week is an innovative subscription service which is “on a mission to make textbooks more affordable.”

Perlego is an eBook subscription startup which provides users with access to over 200,000 professional and academic publications.

Subscribers can choose from either the Student plan or the Premium plan. The Student plan gives users free access for 14 days and then they pay £12 per month thereafter; the premium plan also has a 14 day free trial and then has a £15 monthly charge.

Whether you’re studying politics or psychology, the academic eBooks, reports and publications you need to read will be here. And if it so happens that a book you need isn’t available, the Perlego team will do their best to remedy that and get it in stock too.

Perlego can be accessed on all devices and accessed wherever you may be. No more dashing to the uni library to try and get that one copy which is apparently available, or buying an expensive book and only ever reading one chapter to cram for an exam. With Perlego you can access the books you need when you want to and at a much more affordable price.

Perlego is such a simple idea but it makes so much sense. We reckon this EdTech startup is one to watch / read up about. If you want to find out more about Perlego - why not read our previous interview with Founder Gauthier Van Malderen.
