24 Ash Davies
Ash Davies created Tablo – “a single home to write and discover great stories” – three years ago with $20,000 from Angel Cube.
“That feels like a long time ago,” he says.
Tablo has grown into a burgeoning community of writers and readers with published authors from more than 100 countries.
Millions of books have been read on Tablo, says Davies.
And this year, he’s planning to take it even further.
“Everything we’re doing is focused on providing our authors with more opportunities,” he says.
“We’re working with major publishers and libraries to create new partnerships and campaigns, all of which should make Tablo the best place to have your work uncovered and succeed as an author.”
Davies recently considered raising a series A round but decided not to pursue external funding, instead, working to build Tablo organically on its own backing.
“I’m proud of the culture we’ve built in our team and in particular our users,” he says.
And ultimately, that has always been biggest priority.
“Focus on your product and focus on making your users happy,” he says.
“There are a lot of distractions that come with building a company, but nothing matters more than this.”
