BookClub Raises $6M in Seed Financing



BookClub​, a Salt Lake City, UT-based platform created to scale author-led book clubs, raised $6m in seed funding.

Maveron​ led the round, with participation from ​GSV Ventures​, ​Signal Peak Ventures​, and ​Pelion Venture Partners​. Mike Levinthal also joined the round as a private investor.

The company will use the funds to establish a portfolio of authors on the platform across both fiction and non-fiction book titles, create cinematic video experiences with authors, and build a community platform for 1:1 interactions with authors and book groups.

Led by by David Blake, Eric Sharp, Emily Campbell, the Degreed co-founders and early product leader, respectively, BookClub provides a platform designed to connect readers directly with the author to learn together and inspire life-changing conversation.

On the platform, authors can join a personal book group, lead virtual discussion groups, share exclusive interviews, engage in video-based Q&A’s and more, bringing their content to life for readers who want to dive deeper into a text with the ultimate authority.
