OVERVIEW: No one has enough time. TimeStarvd can help! By creating uniquely customized versions of popular non-fiction books, we give readers big chunks of their life back - as much as 6 to 8 hours - every time they read a TimeStarvd edition. The potential for TimeStarvd's customized business books is about $80 million - in the US alone. With other likely categories included, our market exceeds $500 million. Customized content may ultimately capture 10% of the $20+ billion US book market Competitors include Cliff Notes, getAbstract, and condensed audio books, but none offer customized products. Most books take 8-10 hours to read; a book summary takes about 15 minutes. Our market opportunity lies in exploiting that huge gap! We've already built the core software, and an Android app, and some cool prototypes. The next iteration is under development, informed by things we learned (and screwed-up) the first time around. Until now, we've funded all development ourselves.
