Publisher takes advantage of Venture Acceleration Funds

-A A +A

 Customizabooks, a digital publisher of children’s books, is one of nine New Mexico businesses to receive a total of $340,000 in Venture Acceleration Fund awards from Los Alamos National Security LLC and Los Alamos County.
The Rio Rancho company plans to use its $50,000 award to expand distribution channels for its digital book applications, which create electronic books and convert existing books into digital content that’s accessible on all major mobile platforms, according to founder Tom Anderson, who manages the company with his brother, Bill.
The money also will help the Andersons finish developing their latest product, the Blackfish Story Creator, which allows people to create and share their own digital stories.
What makes Customizabooks different than other e-books, Anderson said, is its high level of interactivity, functionality and customization — features that carry over from his 11 years as the founder and chief executive officer of Novint Technologies, the world’s leading video game company in the field of 3-D touch. “At our core, we’re a tech company, not a book company,” he said.
