The History of Akademos
Akademos, Inc. was founded in 1999 by a university professor that saw first-hand how the exorbitant costs and complexity of textbook distribution weakened classroom learning. Many students were unable to afford the books they needed, often coming unprepared to class without their required materials. Seventeen years later, our vision of a full-service virtual bookstore has become the model platform for efficient, cost-effective purchasing and distribution of new, used, rental and digital textbooks and course materials. Since its inception, the company has saved students over $50 million on course materials, including over $13 million in 2016.
The management staff is very receptive to operational tweaks allowing for innovation.
The culture is a bit loose, and some employees work harder than others with similar titles.
