Immer is an award-winning social company that’s 100% dedicated to revolutionizing digital reading, we’re always researching & developing to improve and expand our technology

Are you an author, publisher, distributor, bookseller, librarian, teacher, reading promoter or researcher? Are you a reader? At Immer we strive to make digital books read better, to the benefit of everyone in the reading ecosystem.

We care deeply about digital reading. Reading is unique, a medium you digest at your own pace, amplified by your imagination, helping you learn and empathize (among various other proven benefits). Modern technology can help spread reading more widely, improving society as a whole – we stand behind the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal #4.

We’d been researching digital reading for a decade before founding Immer in April 2020. Since then, we’ve launched a proof of concept consumer app, validated its effect with scientists, won a bunch of international prizes, and built the Immer Reading System to bring what we’ve learned to anyone who needs it.

And it feels like we’re just getting started!
