About Scribd

Scribd is the leader in online document sharing and publishing. It was founded in 2006 by then-Harvard students Trip Adler and Jared Friedman, and their friend Tikhon Bernstam, when they couldn't find a way to publish the documents they wrote for school on the Web. Scribd has since grown to service over 19 million unique visitors per month and has the largest document-sharing community on the Internet. Documents hosted on the site are being viewed and embedded across the Internet in every corner of the globe. Scribd is funded by Y Combinator, The Kinsey Hills Group and Redpoint Ventures.
