History of Better World Books
The company was founded in 2002 by three friends from the University of Notre Dame who started selling textbooks online to earn some money, and ended up forming a pioneering social enterprise — a business with a mission to promote literacy. College friends and ultimate frisbee teammates Xavier and Kreece were sitting around after graduation wondering what to do next. Tired of seeing piles of textbooks in the rooms, they decided to sell them online.
Even though it was the middle of the summer, the textbooks started selling like proverbial hotcakes. Xavier, ever the entrepreneur, knew a good thing when he saw one and proceeded to sell off his old textbooks and those of all his roommates’ who had fled and left their books behind. He became intrigued by the online book market, and wondered how he could find a lot more books. As the demand started to accumulate, they also recruited their friend Jeff in this venture.
