Once upon a time…

It started with a long conversation between one member of our team with his father. At that time, they discussed the question whether magazines were just a waste of paper, cause they often only read once and whether there was no way to organize an economic transfer of this short-lived print media to other intersted readers. For example, the option of an exchange via mobile app to give away used magazines in public places or to deliver them for a small fee. However, this idea was quickly forgotten, cause this would mean a big effort for all involved.

The idea

During a longer trip, we finally had the big idea. At the breakfast table of a hotel were all available newspapers out of print. But it would be practical for restaurants, medical practices or other public institutions to offer their customers newspapers and magazines also in in digital form, or not? Since that day, we have been working continuously on a business model for a digital reading circle app and we applyed for the Entrepreneuship Prize of the University of Oldenburg – and won. This gave us the confirmation of the potential of our idea and so 2014 we founded the sharemagazines GmbH. Til today we have already gained many partners to enable you to choose from a wide selection of newspapers and magazines. And, of course, we continue to work day by day. We hope that you like sharemagazines until now. We keep you up to date on all new releases.
