PubCoder, an Italy-based startup that has just been founded to develop a platform to create advanced digital books, has raised an initial funding of undisclosed amount.
Backers include H-FARM and a group of unnamed angel investors.
Co-founded by Paolo Albert and CEO Paolo Giovine, PubCoder provides illustrators, publishers and creators with various tools to make new digital contents available on tablets, smartphones and the web, where sounds, music, readings, interactions and animations add to text and images.
The tool will be freely available online during the next months.
In its testing phase, PubCoder has started a collaboration with Italian top publisher De Agostini.
