Mitchell Davis (@biblioboard) is a publishing and media entrepreneur. He was a founder in 2000 of BookSurge the world’s first integrated global print-on-demand and publishing services company (sold to Amazon in 2005 and re-branded as CreateSpace). He is founder & chief business officer of BiblioLabs the creators of BiblioBoard. BiblioBoard is an award-winning App and web ecosystem that launched in March 2013 with the firm belief that if libraries can affordably create user-experiences that compete with those of consumer companies like Amazon and Apple, it will create a more lucrative institutional sales model for publishers and transform information access for society. Today they work with thousands of libraries, archives and publishers around the world in pursuit of that vision.
