The GAU launches “Renew the Book” startup competition

The General Publisher’s Association (GAU), the leading representative voice for books in the Netherlands, today announced the launch of Renew the Book - a startup competition aimed at bringing innovative technologies and ideas to the publishing business.

Wiet de Bruijn, Chairman of the General Publisher’s Association explains, “everywhere in the world publishers, whether in news, music or books, struggle with the internet. With the ‘Renew the Book’ project we say we want to stimulate change and we are not afraid to admit that the best ideas might come from outside the publishing industry. I hope there will be revolutionary ideas among them.”
