YouScribe: A whole journey!

Today, our start-up is already operating in France and in several African countries (Senegal, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Morocco, Tunisia). Through us, you will be able to read and discover nuggets rarely available internationally in French, English, Arabic and many other languages. But how did YouScribe get to where it is today?

Located in the heart of Paris, the company brings together a team that is passionate about culture and new technologies. Discover our history!

It was Juan Pirlot de Corbion's idea to create a platform, a social network dedicated to the sharing of digital writings, that launched the YouScribe adventure in 2011. YouScribe users can publish their novels, screenplays, musical scores, thesis, courses or even internship reports... And share them with the whole community.

YouScribe is winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Award for the best crowdfunding project.
