It is Hard to Compete with Free Textbook Publishers when they have Millions of Dollars in Funding
It is fun to think where we would be if we had the millions of dollars in funding that the free, and low cost, educational publishers have received. We are self-funded, and the investment doesn't come close to the funding given to OpenStax, Lumen Learning, and the other OER publishers. I am actually glad that we didn't have more money in the beginning because we would have wasted it. But now we are very efficient and the $5M or $10M the other publishers have received would go a long way with us; we probably have the highest return on investment of any of the small publishers And who would benefit the most if we had more funding? Students. Remember, we are the only publisher owned and operated by someone with over 30 years of experience in the higher education classrooms, who enjoys teaching developmental mathematics. We know our students, we are on their side; we want them to be successful. You can support us by using one of our textbooks in one of your classes.
