Details

Come and learn how to turn your passions into a viable business. Hear from the creators of One Third Stories that went from "side project" to a full-time, successful business.

One Third Stories started in 2014 as a side project while Alex Somervell and Jonny Pryn were studying Humanities at (different) universities. The 'side project' would consist of a monthly chat over Skype to brainstorm ideas for stories. Little did they know the project would end be something they would be working on full-time pretty much out of university and go on create 21 titles, ship over a hundred thousand boxes to customers in 41 countries and receive over half a million pounds in investment.
