Perlego’s mission
To make education accessible to all.
We believe education is a human right, so we built an online library with accessibility, affordability and sustainability at its core.

Not so long ago our founders, Gauthier and Matt, were students struggling to pay for textbooks, like so many of their peers. Textbook prices continue to skyrocket, leaving students unable to afford the resources they need. Some students resort to piracy and second-hand books, but many others are priced out of the education system altogether. This not only limits students’ access to knowledge but also leaves researchers, authors and the publishing industry at a loss.

Perlego was born to provide an affordable (and sustainable) textbook solution for learners around the world, by partnering with publishers and removing the costs of print, distribution, and retail markup.
